Quantitative data about what the entity regards as capital. Whether the entity has complied with any capital requirements. If it has not complied, the consequences of such non-compliance. These disclosure requirements apply to all entities, effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2007, with earlier application encouraged.

Illustrative examples are added to IAS 1 as guidance.
