20 Dec 2011

During February and March 2012, the IASB and FASB are holding a number of public roundtables on their proposals to exempt investment entities from consolidation.

The IASB published Exposure Draft ED/2011/4 Investment Entities on 25 August 2011, proposing to define 'investment entities' as a separate type of entity that would be exempt from the consolidation accounting requirements in IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements. Comments on the Exposure Draft close on 5 January 2012.

Details of the roundtables, including the registration deadline, are set out in the table below:


Country Location Date Deadline
Canada Toronto 17 February 2012 27 January 2012
United Kingdom London 29 February 2012 8 February 2012
United States Norwalk 20 March 2012* 28 February 2012*
Malaysia Kuala Lumpur 27 March 2012 6 March 2012

* The date of the Norwalk roundtable was changed to 16 March 2012 in mid January 2012. The registration deadline was also brought forward to 24 February 2012.
