IASB amends standard on foreign exchange

15 Dec 2005

The IASB has issued a limited amendment to IAS 21 The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates.

The amendment responds to concerns expressed by the IASB's constituents earlier this year that IAS 21 as amended in December 2003 required different accounting depending on the currency in which a monetary item was denominated where such an item was regarded as part of an entity's investment in a foreign operation. Secondly, IAS 21 was not clear on whether any member of a consolidated group could enter into the monetary transaction with the foreign operation. In response to those concerns, the IASB reviewed IAS 21 and reached the following decisions, which are reflected in the amendment:
  • As regards a monetary item that forms part of an entity's investment in a foreign operation, the IASB concluded that the accounting treatment in consolidated financial statements should not be dependent on the currency of the monetary item.
  • Also, the accounting should not depend on which entity within the group conducts a transaction with the foreign operation.
The amendment is available for adoption with immediate effect. Click for IASB Press Release (PDF 52k).

Issues not added to IFRIC agenda

14 Dec 2005

At its meeting on 1 December 2005, the IFRIC reached tentative decisions not to place five issues on its agenda: Whether a new entity that pays cash can be identified as the acquirer 'Transitory' common control Leases of land that do not transfer title to the lessee IAS 12 Income Taxes - scope Subscriber acquisition costs in the telecommunications industry The December 2005 edition of the IFRIC Update newsletter contains IFRIC's draft reasons for rejecting these issues.

IFRIC plans further discussion in March 2006. Public comment on these tentative decisions is invited by 20 January 2006. The newsletter may be downloaded from IASB's Website (currently subscribers only; in a few days no restrictions). Because our IASPlus web page that contains a comprehensive Summary of Issues Not Added to IFRIC Agenda reflects only final (rather than tentative) agenda decisions made by the IFRIC, we have not changed our web page as a result of the 1 December 2005 IFRIC meeting.
