Exposure Draft and comment letters—Insurance Contracts

 

On 30 July 2010 the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) published for public comment an exposure draft of improvements to the accounting for insurance contracts. The exposure draft proposes a single International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) that all insurers, in all jurisdictions, could apply to all contract types on a consistent basis.

When the IASB was established in 2001 there were no international financial reporting requirements for insurance contracts. In 2004 the IASB introduced IFRS 4 Insurance Contracts as an interim standard that permitted many existing international accounting practices to be retained, whilst beginning a more comprehensive review of insurance accounting as a second phase of the project. The proposals published today are the result of that review.

The Exposure Draft was open for comment until 30 November 2010.
