The IFRS Interpretations Committee will meet via video conference on Tuesday 15 September 2020 to discuss two topics.

IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements and IFRS 16 Leases—Sale and Leaseback in a Corporate Wrapper: The Committee received a submission asking about the applicability of the sale and leaseback requirements in IFRS 16 to a transaction in which an entity sells its equity interest in a subsidiary that holds only a real estate asset and then leases that real estate asset back. The submitter asked as to how the gain or loss on disposal should be recognised. The staff concluded that the principles and requirements in IFRS 10 and IFRS 16 provide an adequate basis to determine that the transaction is a sale and leaseback and that the requirements in IFRS 16 apply. On that basis the staff recommend that the Committee not add the matter to its agenda.

IAS 12 Income Taxes—Deferred Tax arising from a Single Transaction: In July 2019, the Board published Exposure Draft ED/2019/5 Deferred Tax related to Assets and Liabilities arising from a Single Transaction (Amendments to IAS 12).The staff analysed the respondents' feedback to the ED and will present the preliminary proposed recommendations to the Committee for advice.

Work in progress: The staff are analysing requests related to the hedge of variability in cash flows in real terms and configuration or customisation costs in a cloud computing arrangement.
