Certain business transactions require careful consideration when applying the IFRS for SMEs Standard. Examples of these transactions include: transactions involving SMEs under liquidation or under business rescue, contingent liabilities, intangible assets, BEE transactions and deferred tax. 

Application of the Standard is not as easy as it looks and compilers could end up in trouble with CIPC and SARS if the presentation and disclosure of these transactions is found to be faulty. In January 2020, the IASB published the Request for Information: Comprehensive Review of the IFRS for SMEs Standard. Prior to this, the Standard had received a handful of critical amendments that became effective for years beginning on or after 1 January 2017.
