The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has announced that the 2013 edition of the Bound Volume of International Financial Reporting Standards (the 'Red Book') is now available.

The 'Red Book' contains all official pronouncements issued at 1 January 2013, including all pronouncements with an effective date after 1 January 2013, but not the pronouncements they will be replaced or superseded. Accordingly, the 2013 edition contains pronouncements as a result of amendments from Government Loans (Amendments to IFRS 1); Consolidated Financial Statements, Joint Arrangements and Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities: Transition Guidance (Amendments to IFRS 10, IFRS 11 and IFRS 12); Investment Entities (Amendments to IFRS 10, IFRS 12 and IAS 27); and Annual Improvements to IFRSs 2009–2011 Cycle (which contained separate amendments to IFRS 1, IAS 1, IAS 16, IAS 32 and IAS 34).

eIFRS and Comprehensive subscribers can now access the electronic files of the 2013 IFRS (Red Book) via the Latest Additions section of eIFRS (you will be required to provide your login details).

The Red Book is also available through the IASB's Web Shop. Copies are priced at £65 each, plus shipping. Discounts are available for multiple copies, academics/students and residents of middle and low-income countries.
