IFRS News is your quarterly update on all things relating to International Financial Reporting Standards. We’ll bring you up to speed on topical issues, provide comment and points of view and give you a summary of any significant developments.
We begin this first edition of 2016 by looking at IFRS 16, the new Standard on lease accounting which was published by the IASB on 13 January. We then move on to items currently in the IASB’s pipeline before taking a look at issues that regulators are likely to focus on in the coming months.
Further on in the newsletter, you will find IFRS-related news at Grant Thornton and a general round-up of financial reporting developments. We finish with a summary of the implementation dates of newer Standards that are not yet mandatory, and a list of IASB publications that are out for comment.
