NZASB Meeting 21 September 2021

Here is a summary of the main matters considered in the public sessions.

Tier 3 and Tier 4 PIR

The Board considered proposed amendments to the Tier 4 PBE Standards that address some of the concerns raised by constituents in their responses to the Post-implementation Review of Simple Format Reporting Standards (PIR). The proposed amendments would significantly reduce the length of the Tier 4 Standards.

The Board also considered an issues paper on the recognition of donation and grant revenue in the Tier 3 PBE Standard. Feedback received on the PIR highlighted concerns that the ability to defer revenue for donations and grants was too restrictive, being permitted only when there are “use or return” conditions attached.

Further issues raised by constituents will be considered at future meetings.

Public Sector Insurance

The Board discussed the following topics relating to the requirements in PBE IFRS 17 and considered staff recommendations in respect of each topic:

  • Identifying and accounting for onerous contracts and related unit of account issues
  • Redeliberation of scope and risk adjustments topics
  • Measurement of investments backing insurance liabilities
  • Risk mitigation program costs and other similar costs
  • Captive insurers
