This proposed amendment is part of the IASB’s and the Interpretations Committee’s work on maintenance of IFRSs. The issue relates to an inconsistency in IFRSs that is leading to diversity in practice. The proposed amendment is narrow in scope and occupies little of the IASB’s time. Given the limited nature of the project and the narrow scope of the proposed amendments, the IASB does not undertake a separate consultation with the Advisory Council.

Analysis of likely effects of the forthcoming IFRS or major amendment, for example, costs or on-going associated costs.

Required

Publication of effect analysis

IASB reviews with DPOC results of effect analysis and how it has considered such findings in proposed IFRS.

Given the narrow scope and the expected limited consequences of the proposed amendments, an effects analysis is not prepared.
