Amendments to IFRS 5

Exposure draft and comment letters [Sep 2008]


Exposure draft and comment letters


 

On 25 September 2008, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) published for public comment an exposure draft of proposed amendments to IFRS 5 Non-current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations.

The proposals are to revise the definition of discontinued operations and require additional disclosure about components of an entity that have been disposed of or are classified as held for sale.

The proposed definition could result in fewer items being recognised in financial statements as discontinued operations than at present. However, the additional disclosures would give information about components of an entity that have been disposed of or are held for sale but do not meet the definition of a discontinued operation

Comment Letter deadline


Comments were due by 23 January 2009. Comment period is now closed.
