IFRS Taxonomy Update (Interest Rate Benchmark Reform – Phase 2) [Completed]

Effective date:

The amendments apply to annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2021. Earlier application of the amendments, and therefore earlier use of the new IFRS Taxonomy elements, is permitted.

Last up­dated:

December 2020



When the International Accounting Standards Board (Board) issues new IFRS Standards or amendments to existing IFRS Standards, it also updates the IFRS Taxonomy to reflect new or amended presentation and disclosure requirements. These updates ensure that the IFRS Taxonomy accurately reflects IFRS Standards.

In December 2020, the International Accounting Standards Board (Board) issued IFRS Taxonomy 2020—Update 2 Interest Rate Benchmark Reform—Phase 2. This Update includes IFRS Taxonomy elements to reflect the new disclosure requirements introduced by Interest Rate Benchmark Reform—Phase 2, which amended IFRS 9, IAS 39, IFRS 7, IFRS 4 and IFRS 16, issued by the Board in August 2020.
