IFRS 1 — Repeat application

Date recorded:

The Committee received a request in March 2010 to clarify whether an entity can apply IFRS 1 more than once.  The staff presented the proposed draft wording of an amendment to IFRS 1 to the Committee for consideration.

Following a short discussion on improving the wording the proposed amendment and the accompanying basis for conclusions, it was agreed that it should be clarified in the basis for conclusion that the requirement to apply IFRS 1 each time an entity prepares financial statements that meet the definition of its first IFRS financial statements, only apply when the entity has applied IFRSs in previous periods but not in its most recent financial statements.

The Committee unanimously agreed to amendment of the Standard as proposed.
