Alert: Post-implementation Review – IFRS 10, IFRS 11 and IFRS 12            (Jul 2021)

Background

The International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”) is carrying out its Post-implementation Review of IFRS 10, Consolidated Financial Statements (“IFRS 10”), IFRS 11, Joint Arrangements (“IFRS 11”), and IFRS 12, Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities (“IFRS 12”).

The purpose of the Post-implementation Review is to assess the effects of IFRS 10, IFRS 11 and IFRS 12 on users of financial statements, preparers and auditors, and is a mandatory step in the IASB’s due process for new or singificantly amended IFRS standards. Specifically, the IASB aims to assess whether the requirements in the standards produce financial statements that faithfully represent an entity’s financial position and performance, if the information helps users make informed decisions, if there are areas in the standards that pose challenges and could result in inconsistent application, and if unexpected costs arise when applying the requirements of the standards.

This Post-implementation Review is being conducted in two phases. The first phase involved an identification and assessment of the matters to be examined further, including the publication of a Request for Information (“RFI”). The second phase involves the IASB considering the responses to the RFI, feedback from discussions with stakeholders and a review of relevant research on the effect on financial reporting of applying the standards and any next steps that need to be taken.

Request for Information

In December 2020, the IASB published the RFI on the Post-implementation Review of IFRS 10, IFRS 11 and IFRS 12.

The RFI included ten questions that covered the respondent’s background, matters that the IASB decided to examine in phase one related to applying IFRS 10, IFRS 11 and IFRS 12, and any comments on other topics. The comment period for the RFI ended on May 10, 2021. 

At its July 21, 2021 meeting, the IASB discussed feedback received on the RFI from comment letters and outreach undertaken. The IASB is expected to decide what actions to take, if any, as a result of the Post-implementation Review in the first half of 2022.
