IASB updates work plan for October meeting decisions

  • IASB (International Accounting Standards Board) Image

Oct 21, 2012

The IASB has released a revised work plan reflecting changes as a result of decisions made at its October 2012 meeting. The project on IAS 8 effective dates and transition has been removed, and a new project on revenue-based methods of depreciation under IAS 16 and IAS 38 has been added (splitting it out from the annual improvements 2011–2013 cycle).


Background to the changes

At its October meeting, the IASB tentatively decided that the ballot draft on amendments to IAS 8 was to be withdrawn and the narrow scope project removed from the IASB work plan. Issues arising from the project may instead be dealt with in an upcoming disclosure forum and as part of the Conceptual Framework project.

At the meeting, the IASB also discussed the forthcoming exposure draft on the 2011–2013 annual improvements cycle and noted concerns of the Due Process Oversight Committee within the last Trustees meeting that the amendments to IAS 16 and IAS 38 regarding revenue-based depreciation may not meet the annual improvements criteria. Accordingly, the Board decided to expose the proposals on IAS 16 and IAS 38 as a separate exposure draft.


Due process documents expected before the end of 2012

The following due process documents are expected to be issued by the end of 2012 (this includes those items already noted above):
