The International Accounting Standards Board (Board), in conjunction with the European Accounting Association (EAA), held a virtual research seminar on 10 July 2020, which provided an overview of the Board’s Exposure Draft General Presentation and Disclosures and relevant academic literature.
The proposals in this project affect everyone applying IFRS Standards, and their aim is to improve communication in the financial statements, with a focus on the statement of profit or loss.
The session obtained feedback from academics on the proposals and discussed relevant academic evidence. It was moderated by EAA President Thorsten Sellhorn, with presentations from technical staff members, followed by Q&As with staff and Board Members Tom Scott and Ann Tarca.
