IASB issued an update to the IFRS Taxonomy 2020 to reflect the amendments introduced in phase 2 of the interest rate benchmark reform. The update includes IFRS taxonomy elements to reflect the new disclosure requirements introduced by the amendments issued in August 2020. The phase 2 of interest rate benchmark reform amended old and new standards on financial instruments (IAS 39 and IFRS 9), IFRS 7 on disclosures related to financial instruments, IFRS 4 on insurance contracts, and IFRS 16 on leases.
The amendments added disclosure requirements to IFRS 7 to enable users of financial statements to understand the effect of interest rate benchmark reform on an entity’s financial instruments and risk management strategy. Earlier application of the amendments is permitted. If an entity applies these amendments early, it shall disclose that fact. In this IFRS Taxonomy Update, changes to IFRS taxonomy elements have been shown in tables. New elements are shaded in green while the elements provided for context only (that is, to which no changes have been made) have been set out in grey text. The document does not provide the full list of XBRL properties for the IFRS taxonomy elements listed. The IFRS taxonomy includes documentation labels for elements in the IFRS taxonomy. Documentation labels describe, in text, the accounting meaning of each element. Documentation labels for new elements have been included in Appendix B.
