Amending Standards Approved – Tier 1 and Tier 2 For-profit Entities

The Board approved the following amending standards, all of which are effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2022 (with early application permitted).

  • Reference to the Conceptual Framework, which amends NZ IFRS 3 Business Combinations by replacing a reference to an older conceptual framework with a reference to the most recent conceptual framework.
  • Onerous Contracts—Cost of Fulfilling a Contract, which amends NZ IAS 37 Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets to specify which costs an entity includes in determining the cost of fulfilling a contract, for the purpose of assessing whether the contract is onerous.
  • Annual Improvements to NZ IFRS 2018–2020, which makes minor amendments to NZ IFRS 1 First-time Adoption of New Zealand Equivalents to International Financial Reporting Standards, NZ IFRS 9 Financial Instruments and NZ IAS 41 Agriculture.
  • Property, Plant and Equipment—Proceeds before Intended Use, which amends NZ IAS 16 Property, Plant and Equipment to prohibit a reporting entity from deducting from the cost of property, plant and equipment amounts received from selling items produced while the entity is preparing the asset for its intended use. Instead, an entity will recognise such sales proceeds and related costs in profit or loss.
