  • IPSAS 42, Social Benefits;
  • Long-term Interests in As­so­ci­ates and Joint Ventures (Amend­ments to IPSAS 36) andPre­pay­ment Features with Negative Com­pen­sa­tion (Amend­ments to IPSAS 41);
  • Col­lec­tive and In­di­vid­ual Services(Amend­ments to IPSAS 19); and
  • Im­prove­ment to IPSAS, 2019.
