Other Comprehensive Income: Presentation of items by reclassification status an emerging issue under IFRS

This report considers the presentation of other comprehensive income following the issue of amendments to IAS 1 “Presentation of financial statements”. It considers how the various line items that represent other comprehensive income are reported by nature focusing on the presentational split between those items that will not be reclassified subsequently to profit or loss and those that will be reclassified to profit or loss when specific conditions are met. 

IAS 19 Revised "Employee Benefits", an emerging issue under IFRS

This report focuses on the early adoption of amendments to IAS 19 “Employee benefits”. It considers three main areas: the recognition of actuarial gains and losses in other comprehensive income rather than partial recognition through profit or loss; the replacement of interest cost and expected return on plan assets with a net interest amount that is calculated by applying a discount rate to the net defined benefit obligation / asset; and the recognition of past service costs.
