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

Targeted Review of the Accounting Standards Framework

The Board received an update on the informal feedback arising from outreach activities conducted during the consultation period of the XRB’s Discussion Paper (DP) Targeted Review of the New Zealand Accounting Standards Framework. The Board also received a high-level update on the formal submissions received in relation to the DP.

A detailed analysis of the submissions will be received at a future meeting.

Tier 3 and tier 4 post-implementation review 

The Board agreed to start work on preparing for the planned post-implementation review (PIR) of the Tier 3 and Tier 4 standards. The Board provided feedback on the scope and the approach to the project.

A project plan will be considered at a future meeting.
