Why a project on presentation l.jpg

Why a project on presentation?

  • Looking for a common approach (IFRS-USGAAP)

    • convergence

  • Clarify relationship between the financial statements

  • Items with different characteristics lumped together (dissimilar items aggregated?)

Project objectives and benefits

  • Establish a standard that will guide the organization and presentation of information in the financial statements

  • Provide an overall structure for financial statements that will:

    • allow enough flexibility to communicate unique aspects of a business

      • for preparers to better portray their business

      • for users to understand and “get the message”

Main principles l.jpg

Main principles

Financial statements should :

  • Portray a cohesive financial picture

  • Disaggregate information:

    • into sections and categories

    • separate financing from business activities and segregate discontinued operations

  • Present information about liquidity and financial flexibility

Classification guidance l.jpg

Classification guidance

  • Classification of A&L drives classification of changes in those items in:

    • Statement of comprehensive income

    • Statement of cash flows

  • Classification based on management’s approach of its business & financing activities

  • Each entity decides the order of sections and categories – same order for each statement

Statement of financial position l.jpg

Statement of financial position

  • Classification of assets and liabilities in short-term and long-term subcategories unless a presentation based on liquidity provides more relevant information

    • Not a current requirement in US GAAP

    • IAS 1 requires current / non-current distinction

© 2008 IASC Foundation. 30 Cannon Street | London EC4M 6XH | UK. www.iasb.org


Comprehensive income l.jpg

Comprehensive income

  • Single statement of comprehensive income

  • Disaggregation by function and further by nature of relevant items

  • Separate classification of OCI items with recycling

  • Profit or loss – relevant subtotal

  • Taxes should be allocated to:

    • continuing operations

    • discontinued operations

    • OCI items.

Statement of cash flows l.jpg

Statement of cash flows

  • Notion of cash equivalents would not be retained

  • Preference for direct method of reporting cash flows

    • Cash payments and cash receipts for operating category

      • Instead of reconciling profit or loss to operating cash flows (indirect method)

    • Same for investing and financing cash flows

Reconciling the statements l.jpg

Reconciling the statements

  • Considered: Full reconciliation of opening and closing balance sheet

    • Show links with cash flows and comprehensive income

    • Can be very complex

  • Proposed: More limited reconciliation of comprehensive income and cash flow showing disaggregation into:

    • Cash flows, accruals and systematic allocations, and recurring/non recurring remeasurements (eg fair value changes)
