Last updated:

March 2015


The IFRS Taxonomy is a translation of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) into eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL). The IFRS Taxonomy 2015 is consistent with IFRS as issued by the IASB at January 1, 2015, including standards published but not yet effective at that date.

The IFRS Taxonomy 2015 incorporates the 2014 Interim Release 1 and 2014 Interim Release 2 published in May and November 2014 respectively. The Proposed 2014 Interim Release 3 was published in December 2014, and these final changes (relating to (i) IFRS 9, Financial Instruments, published by the IASB in July 2014; and (ii) narrow-scope amendments to IFRS and the IFRS Taxonomy) have been incorporated directly within the IFRS Taxonomy 2015.
