Fair value measurement information under IFRS

IFRS 13 “Fair value measurement” sets out a single consistent framework for measuring fair value within IFRS financial statements and outlines a standardised set of disclosures in respect of fair value measurements. IFRS 13 has been mandatory now for some years, with application being required for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013. This report sets out the results of how requirements of the standard have been put into practice, both in terms of measurement and disclosure, in the consolidated financial statements of 139 large public limited companies with year ends between 31 March 2016 and 1 April 2017. It is not an exhaustive study of all aspects of IFRS 13 application and its conclusions are limited to our findings in respect of the areas analysed within the financial statements reviewed.

Disclosure of the impacts of IFRS 16 "Leases"

IFRS 16 “Leases” will fundamentally change accounting by lessees as it requires assets previously off balance sheet under operating lease arrangements to be brought on balance sheet as is currently the case for finance leased assets. As a result on application companies will recognise both additional assets and additional liabilities. Consequently there will also be knock on effects in the income statement as operating lease charges are replaced by a depreciation charge and a finance expense. This report analyses the financial statements of a range of companies to firstly establish whether there has been any early adoption and secondly to establish what companies are disclosing in respect of IFRS 16 and its future impacts.

Share-based payments under IFRS disclosure of the extent of arrangements and valuation

This report examines company disclosures in respect of share-based payment arrangements. It considers specifically disclosures in relation to the extent of such arrangements and the valuation of instruments granted. In relation to the valuation of share options the report considers the valuation methods applied by the sample companies.  

Share-based Payment Arrangements under IFRS disclosure of nature and impact

This report examines company disclosures in respect of share-based payment arrangements. It considers specifically disclosures in relation to the nature of such arrangements and the impacts on profit or loss during the period. The report will also look at the overall significance of share-based payments by considering total share-based payment expense as a percentage of profit after tax, the length of disclosure in the financial statements and the number of share-based payment schemes that companies have.
