IFRS 5, Non-current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations
Mazars Insight IFRS 5 - 2009
Practical guide to application and expected changes
IFRS 5, Non-current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations, was published to achieve convergence with US GAAP and represented a significant change for many companies.
This recent standard - effective from 1 January 2005 - has raised a lot of practical questions as to its implementation, particularly given the non-recurrent nature of operations falling within its scope.
The objective of this brochure is both to review the principles underlying IFRS 5 and to clarify the main points with examples and practical situations. We also discuss current IASB / IFRIC debates and the expected amendments to IFRS 5, in particular in the course of the IASB's annual improvements process.
