The International Accounting Standards Board (Board) recognises that the covid–19 pandemic is creating difficulties for many of our stakeholders. A supplementary meeting will be held on 17 April to discuss:

  • whether to propose a deferral by one year to 1 January 2023 of the effective date of an amendment to IFRS Standards issued in January— Classification of Liabilities as Current or Non-Current;
  • whether to extend the consultation period for some major ongoing consultations; 
  • delaying the publication of forthcoming major consultation documents originally planned for 2020; and
  • IFRS 16 and rent concessions granted as a result of covid-19.

Find further information here about how the IFRS Foundation is supporting its stakeholders during the pandemic. This includes educational materials on the application of IFRS 9 Financial Instruments and IFRS 16 Leases to support consistent and robust application of the Standards.

  • Amendments to IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts
