Exposure Draft: Classification of Liabilities (Proposed amendments to IAS 1)

Exposure Draft published by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) for comment only. Comments on the Exposure Draft need to be received by May 10, 2015.

The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has published this Exposure Draft of proposed amendments to IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements to address:

(a)  replacing ‘discretion’ in paragraph 73 of the Standard with ‘right’ to align it with the requirements of paragraph 69(d) of the Standard;

(b)  making it explicit in paragraphs 69(d) and 73 of the Standard that only rights in place at the reporting date should affect this classification of a liability; and

(c)  deleting ‘unconditional’ from paragraph 69(d) of the Standard so that ‘an unconditional right’ is replaced by ‘a right’.
