THE IASB has published narrow scope amendments to IAS 19, employee benefits entitled Defined Benefit Plans: Employee Contributions.
The narrow scope amendments apply to contributions from employees or third parties to defined benefit plans.
The objective of the amendments is to simplify the accounting for contributions that are independent of the number of years of employee service, for example, employee contributions that are calculated according to a fixed percentage of salary.
The issue originated from two submissions to the IFRS Interpretations Committee, which recommended that the IASB amend the Standard.
The amendments are effective from 1 July 2014 with earlier application permitted.
