The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) today issued Investment Entities: Applying the Consolidation Exception (Amendments to IFRS 10, IFRS 12 and IAS 28).
The narrow-scope amendments to IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements, IFRS 12 Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities and IAS 28 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures introduce clarifications to the requirements when accounting for investment entities. The amendments also provide relief in particular circumstances, which will reduce the costs of applying the Standards.
The amendments can be applied immediately and become mandatory for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2016.
Further details are available from the project pages.
