|2013-12-30 | IFRS | Baxılıb: 657 dəfə|
The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) today published for public comment
Exposure Draft: Equity Method in Separate Financial Statements (Proposed amendments to IAS
27). The proposed amendments to IAS 27 would allow entities to use the equity method to
account for investments in subsidiaries, joint ventures and associates in their separate (parent
only) financial statements.
The IASB expects the proposed change will reduce compliance costs for many entities, while
providing information helpful to an assessment of the investor’s net assets and profit or loss.
The proposals are open for public comment for 60 days. This is shorter than the normal comment
period, reflecting the importance of this change to several jurisdictions. The Exposure Draft is
available to download from here.
