IFRS 1 – Additional exemptions for first-time adopters
This project arose from the IASB's consideration of requests from the Canadian Accounting Standards Board (AcSB) and the Canadian oil and gas industry to provide additional exemptions in IFRS 1 First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards in the following areas:
- Derecognition of financial assets and liabilities - this issue was dealt with later on the IASB's project on IFRS 1 'fixed dates'
- Reassessment of accounting under previous GAAP
- Retrospective restatement of fair values
- Oil and gas industry issue: Full cost accounting
