  • Deloitte comment letter on the IASB's discussion paper on business combinations under common control

    published 31 Aug 2021

    We generally agree with the Board’s preliminary views as expressed in the discussion paper. In particular, we agree that different methods should be applied depending on the characteristics of the receiving entity. We agree that when the receiving entity does not have non-controlling shareholders, use of a book-value method is justified by cost-benefit considerations. However, we do not agree that the receiving entity should be required to use the transferred entity’s book values. We also agree that the acquisition method is likely to provide more relevant information to investors that must rely on general purpose financial statements of the receiving entity to obtain the information they require. Accordingly, we believe that the application of the acquisition method should be required more broadly than what is proposed in the discussion paper.

  • Deloitte comment letter on the IASB's proposal regarding the lack of exchangeability

    published 31 Aug 2021

    We acknowledge that the use of an official exchange rate may not produce meaningful results when this rate is not available to the entity. However, we do not believe that attempting to estimate the exchange rate that would have been available if the currency had been exchangeable would produce meaningful results either. Accordingly, we believe that the Board should seek a solution that gives precedence to comparability.

  • On the Radar — SEC reporting considerations for guarantees and collateralizations

    published 25 Aug 2021

    SEC registrants may issue a variety of debt or debt-like securities to finance their operations. In certain cases, they may offer credit enhancement arrangements under which subsidiaries of the registrant guarantee the debt or the registrants pledge the stock of their affiliates as collateral. In addition, for various reasons, a subsidiary of the registrant (rather than the registrant) may issue debt or debt-like securities. While these structures or credit enhancement arrangements may be beneficial from a cost-of-capital perspective, registrants should consider the SEC reporting implications.
