The European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) has issued final endorsement advice for IFRS 16 ‘Leases’.

EFRAG assesses that the standard meets all technical en­dorse­ment criteria of the IAS Reg­u­la­tion. While some limitations with regard to relevance, reliability and comparability were identified, the EFRAG determined that they constitute “acceptable trade-off between the objective of achieving a complete and faithful representation of information on the one hand and reducing complexity of applying IFRS 16 on the other hand.” In addition, the EFRAG assesses that adopting the standard would be conducive to the European public good.
