IPSASB publishes three exposure drafts

24 Feb 2020

The International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) has released three interconnected exposure drafts: ED 70 'Revenue with Performance Obligations', ED 71 'Revenue without Performance Obligations', and ED 72 'Transfer Expenses'.

The three exposure drafts are published together to highlight the linkages between the accounting for revenue and transfer expenses.

  • ED 70 is aligned with IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers, while extending the income recognition approach in IFRS 15 to address common public sector transactions which include performance obligations, including those where the ultimate beneficiary is a third party.
  • ED 71 is an update of IPSAS 23 Revenue from Non-Exchange Transactions (Taxes and Transfers) that addresses some of the issues encountered in its application. ED 71 also provides public sector-specific guidance on capital transfers for the first time.
  • ED 72 proposes guidance for transfer expenses, where a transfer provider provides resources to another entity without receiving anything directly in return.

The comment period for the EDs has been extended and comments are now requested by 1 November 2020.
