EU puts segmental reporting on ice

The fate of segmental reporting has been delayed once again after the European Parliament this week postponed voting on an endorsement of the standard

The contentious accounting standard, IFRS 8, was recently criticised by the
parliament’s economic and monetary affairs committee, and has been pilloried by
investor groups and non-profit organisations that want multi-nationals to
disclose tax treatments used in foreign jurisdictions.

Despite a positive assessment report from the European Commission
recommending adoption of the standard, the committee sought to further
deliberate on the issue. Earlier this month, the committee recommended that the
IASB carries out new special impact assessments and also stressed that:
‘European interest should not be sacrificed by the overall objective of
convergence’.
