IASB meeting summaries and observer notes

 IASB December 2007


The Board decided not to add a project on intangible assets to its active agenda.

The Board acknowledged the importance of addressing the accounting issues relating to intangible assets, noting concerns with current requirements that lead to inconsistent treatments for particular types of intangible assets depending on how they arise. However, the Board noted that properly addressing the accounting for intangible assets would impose a large demand on the Board�s limited resources. Instead, the Board expressed a desire that the research work begun as part of the development of the agenda proposal should continue until the Board could consider it again for addition to the active agenda. Consideration will now be given to determining the scope and a process for continuing such research work.
