Rate-regulated Activities - AcSOC

Date recorded:

At the AcSOC meeting on October 20-21, 2016, the AcSB Chair said that she attaches the highest risk related to accounting standards setting to rate-regulated activities. To demonstrate why an IASB project is needed, the AcSB staff researched the decision-usefulness of financial information that reflects the economics of rate- regulated activities. The IASB and many national standard setters have commented on the quality of the resulting research paper and the IASB is currently exploring a suitable accounting model. However, it is not certain that the IASB will develop a standard for these activities. The AcSB intends to identify how to extend its research findings, including working with standard setters in Brazil, Peoples Republic of China, Europe and the U.S.
