The IASB seeks feedback on the implementation of its Business Combinations Standard to learn about whether it is working as intended.
On 30 January 2014 the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) began the public consultation stage of its review of IFRS 3 Business Combinations by publishing a Request for Information (RfI) on experience with, and the effect of, implementing the Standard. The RfI seeks feedback on whether the Standard provides information that is useful to users of financial statements, whether there are areas of the Standard that represent implementation challenges and whether unexpected costs have arisen when preparing, auditing or enforcing the requirements of the Standard.
In addition to publishing the RfI, the IASB will also undertake a range of outreach activities internationally to gather further feedback on the effect of implementing IFRS 3.
The Request for Information comment period ended on 30 May 2014.
