AcSB submits paper for ASAF discussion of rate regulation

19 Sep 2016

During the upcoming meeting of the Accounting Standards Advisory Forum (ASAF) at the IASB's offices in London on 29 September 2016, members will discuss rate-regulated activities. The Canadian Accounting Standards Board (AcSB) has submitted a paper on 'Results of research on the decision-usefulness of financial information that reflects the economics of rate-regulated activities' for the discussion.

The data in the paper provides evidence, mainly from existing practice in Canada, demonstrating what information users need to understand the economics of rate-regulated activities, and how this information factors into their decision-making. It concludes that in the case of rate-regulated entities, users take into consideration the financial effects of rate regulation when making their assessments. The paper also argues that rate-regulated assets command a premium in purchase price given the stable earnings and predictable cash flows they can offer.
