Share-based payments


This project involves developing a standard on all aspects of accounting for share-based payments to employees (including employee stock options), suppliers, creditors, and others. This project will result in a new standard providing guidance in this area. Before this project was started, there was no existing IFRS addressing recognition and measurement, although the then current version of IAS 19 Employee Benefits (1998) required some disclosures.


Current status of the project

This project has been completed. IFRS 2 Share-based Payment was issued in February 2004.
