Following its Post-implementation Review of IFRS 8 on operating segments, the IASB published, on March 28, 2017, an exposure draft proposing amendments to the standard and clarifications in three major areas.
In addition, with IFRS 15, which will come into force in a few months, a good deal of information about implementation of IFRS 15 is provided in the 2016 annual financial statements of many companies.
