IFRS for SMEs — Comprehensive review 2012-2014


Previously, the IASB had stated that it planned to undertake an initial comprehensive review of the International Financial Reporting Standard for Small and Medium-sized Entities (IFRS for SMEs) to assess the first two years’ of experience that entities have had in applying the IFRS for SMEs. During this review process, the IASB intends to consider new and amended IFRSs that have been adopted since the IFRS for SMEs was issued and whether any amendments should be proposed to address any implementation issues identified in the comprehensive review.


Current status of the project

This project has been completed. The IASB issued 2015 Amendments to the IFRS for SMEs on 21 May 2015.
