    IASB Proposes Improvements to IFRS 9 and IFRS 16

    May 21, 2019

    IASB published the exposure draft ED 2019/2 that proposes amendments to four IFRS standards, including IFRS 9 on Financial Instruments and IFRS 16 on Leases. This consultation is a part of the annual maintenance and improvements of the standards. Comments period on this consultation ends on August 20, 2019.

    The draft includes a section for each IFRS standard or accompanying document for which an amendment is proposed. Each section includes an explanation of the proposed amendment, the paragraphs affected by the proposed amendment, and the basis for the Board’s conclusions in proposing the amendment. The proposed amendments to IFRS 9 clarifies the fees a company includes in assessing the terms of a new or modified financial liability to determine whether to "derecognize" a financial liability. The amendment to IFRS 16 removes the potential for confusion regarding lease incentives by amending an Illustrative Example accompanying IFRS 16.

    The annual improvements process provides a mechanism for dealing efficiently with a collection of minor amendments to IFRS standards. The process is limited to changes that either clarify the wording in an IFRS standard or correct relatively minor unintended consequences, oversights, or conflicts between requirements in the standards.
