IFRS Newsletter No. 01 – 2017

In this first issue of 2017, take a closer look at IFRIC 22, Foreign currency transactions and advance consideration and find out the latest news on improvements to IFRS standards.

After a pause of several months, the IASB has started the year by presenting its annual improvements in a short exposure draft, with the next consultations expected as of April.

This interpretation supplements IAS 21, The effects of changes in foreign exchange rates for transactions of this type, and could change the practices of some entities.
