Future-orientated Financial Information – AASB

Date recorded:

At its meeting on June 6-7, 2022, the AASB discussed issues related to developing a new Canadian standard on compilations of FOFI. This new standard will replace Assurance and Related Services Guideline (AuG) 16, Compilation of a Financial Forecast or Projection. Key issues discussed included: (i) whether the new standard should clarify the AuG-16 definitions of “forecast” and “projection”; (ii) whether the new standard’s scope should include budgets and pro forma financial information; and (iii) what requirements and guidance might be needed in the new standard to guide the practitioner to compile FOFI that is not misleading.
