IASB postpones accounting changes for associates and joint ventures

THE IASB has postponed when entities must change some aspects of how they account for transactions between investors and associates or joint ventures until it completes a broader review.

The postponement applies to changes introduced by the IASB in 2014 through narrow-scope amendments to IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements and IAS 28 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures.

Those changes affect how an entity should determine any gain or loss it recognises when assets are sold or contributed between the entity and an associate or joint venture in which it invests. The changes do not affect other aspects of how entities account for their investments in associates and joint ventures.

The announcement removes the current requirement to make these particular changes by 2016.

The reason for making the decision to postpone the effective date is that the IASB is planning a broader review that may result in the simplification of accounting for such transactions and of other aspects of accounting for associates and joint ventures.
