The International Accounting Standards Board (Board) has added the second phase of its project focused on potential financial reporting implications linked to the interest rate benchmark reform—IBOR reform—to its work plan.
Phase one of the project focuses on financial reporting issues in the period before the current interest rate benchmark is replaced with an alternative rate, while phase two focuses on potential issues that might affect financial reporting once the existing rate is replaced with an alternative rate.
The Board’s technical staff has started their analysis of the issues to be considered as part of phase two. To follow developments in phase two of the project you can choose to sign up to receive news stories as email alerts. To do this sign in then go to the project page and click the 'Follow' button. You must be registered with eIFRS—registration is free.
Please ensure you click on the 'manage alerts' tab in the Dashboard to set the frequency of news alerts sent to your email address. Email alerts are set to 'never' by default, so please change this should you wish to receive email alerts.
