Roundtable – Stakeholders’ Views Sought on How to Improve Disclosures in IFRS Financial Statements

Share Your Views

The Accounting Standards Board (AcSB) is holding roundtables to seek input on the International Accounting Standards Board’s (IASB) March 2017 Discussion Paper on the Principles of Disclosure. Participants have the option to attend in person, or by virtual conference or phone.

Why Attend?

Do you think that financial statements contain too much irrelevant information? Or, not enough relevant information? Could important information be disclosed more effectively? Share your views with the AcSB Chair to help shape the IASB’s decisions on what, how and where information should be disclosed in IFRS financial statements. 

What’s this project about?

The IASB’s Principles of Disclosure Project feeds into its central theme of Better Communication in Financial Reporting. The IASB is developing presentation and disclosure principles to enable companies to make better judgments about disclosures. And to help the IASB itself in improving disclosure requirements in IFRS Standards. The end goal? More relevant financial information for investors, and financial statements that serve as more effective communication tools.

What Topics?

The AcSB wants to hear views on key issues such as:

  • the use of performance measures, including non-IFRS (i.e., “non-GAAP”) measures in financial statements; and
  • where best to provide information (i.e., in the financial statements or elsewhere within a financial report).

In addition, time will be devoted to a general session in which participants will have the opportunity to discuss other IASB topics.
