    IASB Proposes Updates to IFRS Taxonomy for 2019

    October 14, 2019

    IASB proposed to update the IFRS taxonomy for 2019 in the context of the interest rate benchmark reform. The proposed update includes IFRS taxonomy elements to reflect the new disclosure requirements introduced by the amendments to IFRS 7, IFRS 9, and IAS 39. IASB issued these new disclosure requirements September 2019. IAS 39 is the old standard on financial instruments, IFRS 9 is the new standard of financial instruments, and IFRS 7 is the standard on disclosures of financial instruments. The deadline for submitting comments is December 13, 2019. The amendments apply to annual periods beginning on or after January 01, 2020. Earlier application of the amendments, and therefore earlier use of the IFRS taxonomy elements, is permitted.

    The amendments, which IASB issued in September 2019, require qualitative and quantitative disclosures to enable users of financial statements to understand how an entity’s hedging relationships are affected by the uncertainty arising from interest rate benchmark reform. IASB proposes to add six new elements to the IFRS taxonomy, as described in paragraph 3 of the proposed update. In addition, the Board proposes to add documentation labels for all the new elements and an implementation note for one new monetary element, as described in paragraphs 8–10 of the proposed update. The IFRS taxonomy files are not being provided for this proposed update because the changes are narrow in scope. However, a final IFRS taxonomy update will be released after the IASB approval.
