Highlights- Last week the IASB issued four new standards:
- IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements includes a new definition of control, which is used to determine which entities are consolidated, and describes consolidation procedures
- IFRS 11 Joint Arrangements describes the accounting for joint arrangements with joint control; proportionate consolidation is not permitted for joint ventures (as newly defined)
- IFRS 12 Disclosures of Interests in Other Entities includes all of the disclosure requirements for subsidiaries, joint ventures, associates, and “structured entities”
- IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement provides guidance on how to measure fair value, but does not change when fair value is required or permitted under IFRS
These new standards are effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013.
