IFRS IC meeting (blue)

The IFRS Interpretations Committee met at the IASB's offices in London on 10–11 November 2015. The Interpretations Committee continued its discussions on four issues. Of these, the most substantial discussions were those that related to variable payments for asset purchases (Tuesday 10:05 to 11:05) and the relationship between IFRS 9 and IAS 28 in terms of impairment testing of financial instruments that are “in substance” part of an entity’s net investment in an associate or joint venture (Tuesday 11:35 – 12:15). The Interpretations Committee finalised one agenda decision and considered five new issues. For all of the new issues, the recommendation was not to take the item onto the agenda.
