IASB PUBLISHES NARROW-SCOPE AMENDMENTS TO IAS 27 SEPARATE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has published Equity Method in Separate Financial Statements (Amendments to IAS 27).  The amendments to IAS 27 will allow entities to use the equity method to account for investments in subsidiaries, joint ventures and associates in their separate financial statements.

The amendments will help some jurisdictions move to IFRS for separate financial statements, reducing compliance costs without reducing the information available to investors.

The amendments respond to requests that the IASB had received during its inaugural public agenda consultation.
