The European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) has issued a draft comment letter on the IASB exposure draft ED/2017/4 'Property, Plant and Equipment — Proceeds before Intended Use (Proposed amendments to IAS 16)'.

EFRAG supports the IASB proposals; however, EFRAG does not believe the definition for ‘testing’ is needed since the proposed amendments “do not distinguish between net proceeds from selling items produced during the testing phase from any other proceeds prior to the item of property, plant and equipment being available for use.”

Comments on EFRAG's draft comment letter are requested by 13 October 2017. For more in­for­ma­tion, see the press release and the draft comment letter on the EFRAG website.
