IFRS 3 — Updating a reference to the Conceptual Framework

Back­ground

In March 2018, the IASB issued the 2018 Conceptual Framework and most references to the Framework included in IFRSs were updated to the 2018 Framework at that time. However, paragraph 11 of IFRS 3 Business Combinations, which still refers to the 1989 Framework, was not updated as this could have caused conflicts for entities applying IFRS 3.

Potential conflicts occur as the definition of assets and liabilities in the 2018 Framework differ to those in the 1989 Framework potentially leading to day 2 gains or losses post-acquisition for some balances recognised.

The purpose of this project is to find a possibility to update the reference in a way that avoids the conflicts identified.

 

Current status of the project

An exposure draft of proposed amendments was published on 30 May 2019 with comments requested by 27 September 2019.
