Deloitte's IFRS Global Office has published a special edition Presentation of Financial Statements.

The revisions to IAS 1, which the IASB published on 6 September 2007, represent the first step in the Board's comprehensive project on reporting financial information. The main changes from the previous version of IAS 1 are to require that an entity must:
  • Present all non-owner changes in equity (that is, 'comprehensive income') either in one statement of comprehensive income or in two statements (a separate income statement and a statement of comprehensive income). Components of comprehensive income may not be presented in the statement of changes in equity.
  • Present a statement of financial position (balance sheet) as at the beginning of the earliest comparative period in a complete set of financial statements when the entity applies an accounting policy retrospectively or makes a retrospective restatement.
  • Disclose income tax relating to each component of other comprehensive income.
  • Disclose reclassification adjustments relating to components of other comprehensive income.
The revised Standard is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2009, with early application permitted. You will find all Past IAS Plus Newsletters Here
