Final stage

In May 2020 the International Accounting Standards Board (Board) issued Covid-19-Related Rent Concessions, which amended IFRS 16 Leases. The amendment permitted lessees, as a practical expedient, not to assess whether particular rent concessions occurring as a direct consequence of the covid-19 pandemic are lease modifications and instead to account for those rent concessions as if they are not lease modifications. The amendment did not affect lessors.

In March 2021 the Board issued Covid-19-Related Rent Concessions beyond 30 June 2021, which extended the availability of the practical expedient by one year.
