Exposure Draft – Rate-regulated Activities – August 2009
On November 20, 2009, the AcSB submitted a comment letter responding to the IASB’s Exposure Draft. The letter broadly agrees with the proposals. However, the letter recommends two exceptions to the proposed requirement to discount the estimated cash flows associated with regulatory assets and regulatory liabilities — one for regulatory items relating to deferred income taxes and the other for items relating to employee future benefit costs. Also, the letter recommends expanding the application guidance to clarify the scope of the proposed standard. The AcSB letter posted by the IASB is available here.
