Jul 22, 2015

On July 22, 2015, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) unanimously affirmed its proposal to defer the effective date of IFRS 15 "Revenue From Contracts With Customers" to January 1, 2018. Earlier application of IFRS 15 continues to be permitted.

The IASB had proposed the deferral as it has tentatively decided to propose some targeted amendments to IFRS 15 that some entities may wish to apply at the same time as they first apply IFRS 15. The IASB also acknowledges that IFRS 15 was issued later than had been intended, so implementation time was shorter than anticipated.

Earlier this month, the Financial Accounting Standards Board affirmed its proposal to defer for one year the effective date of its new revenue standard ASU 2014-09 Revenue From Contracts With Customers.
