ASPE 3856 Financial Instruments was effective for annual financial statements related to fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2011. In October 2014, the Accounting Standards Board (AcSB), in accordance with its Due Process Handbook, issued a Request for Comment on the post-implementation review for ASPE 3856 to assess the effects of the Section on financial statement users, preparers and practitioners. The objective of the post-implementation review was to identify unexpected costs or implementation issues encountered when applying ASPE 3856.Based on the feedback received from stakeholders, the AcSB decided to undertake a project to make narrow scope amendments to ASPE 3856.
In October 2017, the AcSB issued an Exposure Draft (ED) titled Accounting for Related PartyFinancial Instruments and Significant Risk Disclosures (Proposed Amendments to Financial Instruments, Section 3856). The ED reflects the Private Enterprise Advisory Committee’s (PEAC) and Not-for-Profit Advisory Committee’s (NPAC) recommendations to clarify the recognition and measurement of related party financial instruments including related party compound financial instruments and improve the usefulness of the financial instruments risk disclosure requirements. The main features of the ED are:
At its May and June 2018 meetings, the AcSB continued discussing feedback from stakeholders and the recommendations from the PEAC. The AcSB decided to make the following amendments to the original proposed guidance:
Comments on the ED were due by January 29, 2018. The AcSB expects to issue the final amendments no later than the fourth quarter of 2018. The proposed effective date of the amendments is for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2020, with earlier application permitted.
