24 Jun, 2014

Following its recent meeting, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has updated its work plan. Given that the second quarter of 2014 will end next Monday, most consultation documents that were still marked as expected in the second quarter have been moved to the third quarter 2014 and as a consequence some other projects have been moved to the fourth quarter. The only pronouncement still expected in June are the IAS 41 amendments regarding bearer plants.

Current status

The revised time table for the major projects is now as follows:

Project Current status Next project step Expected timing
Conceptual Framework — Comprehensive IASB project Redeliberations Exposure draft Q4 2014
Financial instruments — Impairment Redeliberations Finalised IFRS Q3 2014*
