Distinction between Liabilities and Equity

Date recorded:

The staff asked the Board whether there was agreement on acknowledging in the IASB's forthcoming discussion paper that the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) had also issued a discussion paper on the distinction between equity and liabilities. Most Board Members disagreed with the staff's proposed wording and emphasised that the IASB should make it clear that it had not deliberated the final version of the EFRAG document, had therefore reached no final position on its merits and that the acknowledgement of the existence of the EFRAG paper should not be seen as the IASB endorsing the positions taken therein. It was decided to take the staff proposals offline to agree a suitable wording.
