The IASB and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) will be hosting an outreach event on the future of financial reporting on 1 December 2015.

Speakers from the IASB will present on the agenda consultation and on the conceptual framework project; speakers from ICAS will then give their views on these projects and will present the results of new research, jointly funded by ICAS and EFRAG, on professional investors’ views of the decision-usefulness of financial reporting.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Has the IASB correctly identified the right issues for the future?
  • Is there anything missing from the agenda?
  • Have the IASB struck the right balance between fundamental improvements to IFRS versus fine tuning the standards to keep them fit for purpose?
  • Can financial reporting be considered in isolation from wider corporate reporting initiatives?
  • How will the revised Conceptual Framework drive changes in future?
  • How can research help to shape the future of financial reporting?
