The IASB was not asked to make any decisions. The IASB will discuss specific aspects of the feedback identified in September 2021 on the subsequent accounting for goodwill. The IASB will then make decisions about: (a) the package of disclosure requirements about business combinations; (b) whether to maintain its preliminary view to retain the impairment-only approach to the subsequent accounting for goodwill; and (c) other topics within the scope of the project.
