Beyond the GAAP no.56 - May 2012

There are not very many new standards for mandatory application to the 2012 reporting period, which is welcome news at the time when half-yearly accounts are under preparation. Only the IFRS 7 amendment on disclosures on financial assets may prove complex to apply.

This is only a temporary respite, however, and now is the time to prepare for tomorrow's changes. The Accounting Regulatory Committee (ARC) has recently voted to endorse the new standards on consolidation. These will most probably come into force on 1 January 2014. As to the accounting for the subsequent liability recognised for NCI puts, the stranglehold is tightening with the publication of a draft interpretation proposing that all changes in the measurement of NCI puts must be recognised in profit or loss.
