    IASB Publishes Meeting Updates for October 2019

    October 25, 2019

    IASB published a summary of its October meeting. The discussions covered key topics such as amendments to the insurance contracts standard, impact of interest rate benchmark (IBOR) reform on financial reporting, review of IFRS for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) standard, and certain issues on financial instruments with characteristics of equity.

    With respect to the IFRS 17 on insurance contracts, the Board received a summary of the feedback from outreach on the Exposure Draft on amendments to IFRS 17. At the November 2019 meeting, the staff plans to provide the Board with a summary of feedback from comment letters on the Exposure Draft and a plan for redeliberating topics. The Board’s objective remains to issue any amendments to IFRS 17 in mid-2020. Additionally, the Board discussed and took decisions on potential IBOR reform-related accounting issues with respect to the classification and measurement of financial instruments, specifically:

    • The assessment of whether a change in the contractual cash flows or terms of a financial instrument is a substantial modification and the accounting requirements for modifications that are not substantial (that is, modifications that do not result in the derecognition of a financial instrument when IFRS 9 on financial instruments is applied)
    • Modifications that result in the derecognition of existing financial instruments and the accounting implications of recognizing modified financial instruments as new financial instruments

    The Board also discussed its plan to consult stakeholders on the core elements of the Dynamic Risk Management accounting model. After that consultation, the Board will decide how best to pursue the next phase of the project. Also discussed was the 2019 Comprehensive Review of the IFRS for SMEs standard.
