2018 Amendments to XRB A1 Appendix A

When is an entity a public benefit entity?

All Tiers

These proposals are relevant for for-profit entities and public benefit entities (PBEs)—both not-for-profit and public sector entities.

The XRB has issued ED 2018 Amendments to XRB A1 Appendix A (When is an Entity a Public Benefit Entity?)

The main proposals in the ED are:

  • the inclusion of more guidance on the definition of a PBE;
  • the identification of indicators that an entity considers in determining whether it is a PBE or a for-profit entity, some of which are new; and
  • revised illustrative examples.

We encourage you to read the Exposure Draft and comment on the proposals.
