  • Deloitte comment letter on discussion paper on goodwill

    published 21 Dec 2020

    We support the Board’s initiative to assess whether information provided to investors on business combinations can be improved, including by setting clearer disclosure objectives. However, we are not convinced that the proposals in the discussion paper would result in disclosures that provide more useful information to users of the financial statements. Also, we do not support the preliminary view of the Board not to reintroduce amortisation of goodwill. Finally, without the reintroduction of goodwill amortisation, we strongly diagree with the proposal to remove the requirement to perform a quantitative impairment test every year.
