Impact of Covid19 on Financial Statements

Covid-19 – Impact on IFRS Accounting


IASB Project: IFRS for SMEs Revisions

The IASB has published a Request for Information (RfI) which is the first step in its second comprehensive review of the IFRS for SMEs Standard.  The objective of the RfI is to seek views on whether and how aligning the IFRS for SMEs Standard with full IFRS Standards could better serve users of financial statements prepared applying the IFRS for SMEs Standard, without causing undue cost and effort.

IASB Project: Primary Financial Statements

The IASB is seeking feedback on the Exposure Draft General Presentation and Disclosures. The proposals in the Exposure Draft aim to improve how information is communicated in the financial statements, with a focus on information in the statement of profit or loss.
