Final stage

In January 2016, the International Accounting Standards Board issued a new IFRS® Standard to improve the financial reporting of leases. IFRS 16 Leases replaces IAS 17 Leases and its related Interpretations. IFRS 16 has an effective date of 1 January 2019, but earlier adoption is permitted.

Please visit the implementation page for IFRS 16 for information relating to the Board's activities to support the implementation of the Standard.
