ASB publishes OFR update

Link: ASB reopens OFR debate

Similar to the exposure draft published in June last year, the changes include highlighting accounting policies to which the results are most sensitive, highlighting and reconciling where information from the financial statement has been adjusted for inclusion in the OFR, and the identification of measures that are considered key performance indicators.
