IAS 28 — Long-term interests in associates and joint ventures

Background

IFRS 9 Financial Instruments excludes from its scope interests in associates and joint ventures accounted for in accordance with IAS 28 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures. However, the IFRS Interpretations Committee received a submission asking whether that scope exclusion applies only to interests in associates and joint ventures to which the equity method is applied, which seemed a point not clear to some stakeholders. Therefore, the IASB intends to clarify that an entity applies IFRS 9 to long-term interests in an associate or joint venture that form part of the net investment in the associate or joint venture but to which the equity method is not applied.

The proposed amendments were originally included in the exposure draft ED/2017/1 Annual Improvements to IFRS Standards 2015–2017 Cycle published on 12 January 2017. However, in May 2017 the Board decided to finalise the amendments as a narrow scope amendment in its own right.
