The IFRS Taxonomy contains some content that reflects new common practice regarding disclosures entities commonly provide in practice when applying IFRSs. These disclosures are not explicitly referred to in the standards or the accompanying materials.

To provide users with a better understanding of this kind of content and thus to enable them to contribute meaningfully to the IFRS Taxonomy consultation process, the IFRS Foundation has developed a Guide to Common Practice Content. The guide clarifies:

  • IFRS Taxonomy common practice content;
  • why the IFRS Taxonomy includes common practice content;
  • the process followed to identify common practice elements; and
  • the criteria used to propose identified common practice elements for inclusion in the IFRS Taxonomy.

For more information, please see the press release and the new guide on the IASB website.
