Hans talks about the discussion on IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts that took place during the Board meeting and sets out the expected timeline for the Board’s proposed amendments to the Standard, while Sue provides a brief explanation of what the amendments are.
They emphasise that the reasoning behind these proposed changes is to ease implementation and make it easier for companies to explain the results of applying IFRS 17 to investors and others. View detailed information summarising the decisions.
In the podcast, Sue also examines the proposed amendments to IAS 12 Income Tax that were discussed during the Board meeting.
The podcast is rounded off by Hans speaking about the first 2019 meeting of the IFRS Foundation Trustees in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and giving a brief summary of some of the key projects the Board is working on this year.
