IASB issues work plan update for September

  • IASB (International Accounting Standards Board) (blue) Image

26 Sep 2014

Following its September meeting, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has updated its work plan. The revised plan updates the expected redeliberation periods in the amendments to IAS 1 and recognition of deferred tax assets for unrealised losses projects, as well as noting the extension for the expected timing of the exposure draft in the conceptual framework and liabilities projects. The rate-regulated activities project now appears as a major project, while the principles of disclosure remained as a research project. Both the rate-regulated activities and unit of account project have their public consultation periods noted in the revised work plan. Further, the revised plan provides an expected date for a final IFRS on amendments to IAS 1 (Q4 2014) as well as a discussion paper on principles of disclosure (Q1 2015). Lastly, it includes updates to the expected timing of board discussions for various research projects.
