IASB RFI – Third Agenda Consultation

  • For-profit

The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has recently published a Request for Information seeking views on what the financial reporting issues it should prioritise over the next 5 years. 

The IASB is also asking for views on the strategic direction and balance of its activities, for example: how much time it should spend on developing new IFRS Standards compared with supporting consistent application of existing IFRS Standards.

The feedback received will help the IASB determine its activities and work plan for 2022 to 2026.

Some of the IASB’s capacity from 2022 to 2026 will be allocated to completing projects already underway and to post-implementation reviews that assess whether recently issued IFRS Standards are working as intended. However, the IASB also expects to have capacity to take on some new projects.

The future activities and work plan of the IASB is important to New Zealand because the for-profit accounting standards issued by the XRB are based on IFRS Standards.

You can upload up to TWO documents. 

Please note:

  • We would appreciate receiving a copy of your comments in electronic form (preferably Microsoft Word format).  This helps us to more efficiently collate and analyse comments. Please also specify the exposure draft number and title in your electronic file. 

  • Tell us on whose behalf you are making the comments (for example on behalf of a group or an entity).

  • We intend publishing all comments on the XRB website, unless they may be defamatory. If you have any objection to this, we will not publish them. However, they will remain subject to the Official Information Act 1982 and, therefore, may be released in part or in full. The Privacy Act 1993 also applies.

  • If you have an objection to the release of any information contained in your comments, we would appreciate you identifying the parts of your comments to be withheld, and the grounds under the Official Information Act 1982 for doing so (for example, that it would be likely to unfairly prejudice the commercial position of the person providing the information).
