24 Jun 2022

Our popular summary of new and revised financial reporting requirements, updated for financial reporting periods ending on 30 June 2022. This listing can be used to perform a quick check that new financial reporting requirements such as new and revised accounting standards and interpretations, and amendments to standards and interpretations, have been fully considered in the reporting close process. The information below can also be used to assist with the disclosure requirements under paragraph 30 of IAS 8 'Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors', which requires entities to disclose any new IFRSs that are in issue but not yet effective and which are likely to impact the entity.

Financial reporting considerations related to the Russia-Ukraine War
Below is our usual analysis of new and amended standards, however, we are also aware that many entities will have been impacted by Russia's invasion into Ukraine. Please see our IFRS in Focus — Financial reporting considerations related to the Russia-Ukraine War highlighting some of the key issues to be considered by the entities in preparing their financial statements.

This table can be used for all annual accounting periods. A 1st quarter ending on 30 June 2022 would mean that the annual reporting period began on 1 April 2022. Similarly, 2nd quarters ending on 30 June 2022 refer to annual periods that began on 1 January 2022, 3rd quarters ending on 30 June 2022 refer to annual periods that began on 1 October 2021, and 4th quarters ending on 30 June 2022 refer to annual periods that began on 1 July 2021.

The information below reflects developments to 12 August 2022 and will be updated through to September 2022 to reflect new and revised financial reporting requirements that need to be considered for financial reporting periods ending on 30 June 2022. For accounts approved after June 2022, please also refer to subsequent versions of this document for any new and revised IFRSs that have additionally been issued that might require disclosure in the accounts under IAS 8:30.

The information below is organised as follows:

Financial statement considerations in adopting new and revised pronouncements

Where new and revised pronouncements are applied for the first time, there can be consequential impacts on annual financial statements, including:

  • Impact of transitional provisions. IAS 8 Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors contains a general requirement that changes in accounting policies are retrospectively applied, but this does not apply to the extent an individual pronouncement has specific transitional provisions.
  • Disclosures about changes in accounting policies. Where an entity changes its accounting policy as a result of the initial application of an IFRS and it has an effect on the current period or any prior period, IAS 8 requires the disclosure of a number of matters, e.g. the title of the IFRS, the nature of the change in accounting policy, a description of the transitional provisions, and the amount of the adjustment for each financial statement line item affected
  • Third statement of financial position. IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements requires the presentation of a third statement of financial position as at the beginning of the preceding period in addition to the minimum comparative financial statements in a number of situations, including if an entity applies an accounting policy retrospectively and the retrospective application has a material effect on the information in the statement of financial position at the beginning of the preceding period
  • Earnings per share (EPS). Where applicable to the entity, IAS 33 Earnings Per Share requires basic and diluted EPS to be adjusted for the impacts of adjustments result from changes in accounting policies accounted for retrospectively and IAS 8 requires the disclosure of the amount of any such adjustments.

Whilst disclosures associated with changes in accounting policies resulting from the initial application of new and revised pronouncements are less in interim financial reports under IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting, some disclosures are required, e.g. description of the nature and effect of any change in accounting policies and methods of computation.
