International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) today published an Exposure Draft detailing proposed amendments to IFRS 2 Share-based Payment.
The Exposure Draft Classification and Measurement of Share-based Payment Transactions brings together a collection of three proposed amendments to IFRS 2. These proposed amendments were initially discussed by the IFRS Interpretations Committee. The proposals provide guidance on:
- the accounting for the effects of vesting conditions on the measurement of a cash-settled share-based payment;
- the classification of share-based payment transactions with net settlement features; and
- the accounting for a modification to the terms and conditions of a share-based payment that changes the classification of the transaction from cash-settled to equity-settled.
The Exposure Draft will be open for public comment until 25 March 2015 and can be accessed on this link.
