The IASB will meet at its offices in London on Wednesday 23 January 2019. We have posted our pre-meeting summaries for the meeting that allow you to follow the IASB’s decision making more closely. For each topic to be discussed, we summarise the agenda papers made available by the IASB staff and point out the main issues to be discussed by the IASB and the staff recommendations.

The Board will continue to assess concerns and implementation challenges raised by stakeholders about the requirements in IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts. At this meeting the Board will consider four issues: insurance acquisition cash flows for renewals outside the contract boundary; reinsurance contracts held—onerous underlying insurance contracts; reinsurance contracts held—underlying insurance contracts with direct participation features; and recognition of the contractual service margin in profit or loss in the general model. In all cases the staff is recommending that the Board propose amendments to IFRS 17.  

The staff is recommending that the Board proceed with the publication of an Exposure Draft to amend IAS 12 Income Taxes, in relation to the deferred tax on assets and liabilities arising from a single transaction. 

The staff will also give oral updates on the projects on Rate-regulated Activities and Extractive Activities.

Our pre-meeting summaries are available on our January meeting note page and will be supplemented with our popular meeting notes after the meeting.
