IFRS 1 First‑time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards: Borrowing costs

The IASB addressed some concerns that were raised by first-time adopters about the transitional provisions for borrowing costs on:

  1. whether borrowing costs capitalised in accordance with previous GAAP should be retained, restated or eliminated in the opening statement of financial position;
  2. the accounting, after the date of transition, for borrowing costs that relate to such qualifying assets when these qualifying assets are under construction at the date of transition.
