  • ASCG issues draft interpretation following an agenda decision on IAS 12

    16 Jul 2018

    At its meeting in Taipei on 2 and 3 March 2017, the International Forum of Accounting Standard Setters (IFASS) discussed the problem of there possibly being local interpretations of IFRSs at national level other standard-setters (and the IASB) are not aware of. This might be due to the fact that there are problems or that there might be expertise that might, or might not, be available in other jurisdictions. The Accounting Standards Committee of Germany (ASCG) has now issued its first draft interpretation making the draft available in the English language as well after also having reached out to the IFRS Foundation. The interpretation was developed following a negative agenda decision by the IFRS Interpretations Committee on a matter where diversity in practice is observed in Germany.

The idea of a virtual currency that has no links to a jurisdiction and that exists in a public network, maintained on computers operated by a myriad of individuals, was not something that was anticipated when the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) developed its current set of financial reporting requirements.
