Accounting policy changes arising from an agenda decision of the IFRIC (Potential Amendments to IAS 8) - IASB

Date recorded:

At its meeting on June 21-22, 2017, the IASB discussed whether, and if so how, to address the challenges posed by the requirements in IAS 8 for voluntary changes in accounting policies—in particular, changes in accounting policies that result from agenda decisions published by the IFRS Interpretations Committee. Specifically, the Board considered whether it should provide further exceptions in IAS 8 for retrospective application of voluntary changes in accounting policies, either for all voluntary changes in accounting policies or only for those changes that result from agenda decisions. The Board tentatively decided to amend IAS 8 to lower the impracticability threshold regarding retrospective application of voluntary changes in accounting policies that result from agenda decisions. The proposed threshold would include a consideration of the benefits and costs of applying the change retrospectively.
