The Interpretations Committee decided to recommend that the Board should amend IAS 40

 04 November 2011


At the September 2011 meeting, the Interpretations Committee observed that IFRS 3 and IAS 40 Investment Property are not mutually exclusive. An entity acquiring an investment property should consider whether it meets the definition of a business as defined in Appendix A of IFRS 3. The Committee noted that the guidance in paragraphs 11-14 of IAS 40 on ancillary services is intended to delineate an investment property from owner-occupied property, and not to delineate a business combination from the acquisition of a single asset.
