The IASB has published ‘Classification and Measurement of Share-based Payment Transactions (Amendments to IFRS 2)'. The Amendments contain three changes covering the following matters:
- the accounting for the effects of vesting conditions on the measurement of a cash-settled share-based payment;
- the classification of share-based payment transactions with a net settlement feature for withholding tax obligations; and
- the accounting for a modification to the terms and conditions of a share-based payment that changes the classification of the transaction from cash-settled to equity-settled.
We describe the three changes made by the Amendments in more detail in this document.
