The IASB expects to​​ issue an exposure draft on its project on the IBOR reform Phase 2 during April 2020 with a comment period of 45 days.​​ In order to maximise the period during which its constituents can comment on its draft comment, the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) has now published pre-consultation document on the exposure draft.

The views in the document are based on the IASB tentative decisions available on 31 March 2020. They will form the basis for EFRAG’s draft comment letter that will be published as quickly as possible once the IASB has published its exposure draft.

In the document, EFRAG welcomes the tentative decisions taken by the IASB during its deliberations on the second phase of its project on the IBOR reform. In particular, EFRAG supports providing a practical expedient allowing an entity to apply paragraph B.5.4.5 of IFRS 9 Financial Instruments to account for mod​ifications related to IBOR reform; supports the tentative decisions taken on hedge accounting; and observes that the proposed disclosures will assist users of financial statements in understanding the effects of IBOR reform on an entity.​
