IFRS 15 impact disclosures - focus on telecommunications

In our last report on IFRS 15, we looked at the disclosure of the expected impact of the standard in a randomly selected group of 20 UK listed company accounts for periods ending 31 December 2017. None of the sample of companies had early adopted IFRS 15 and only 25% of the sample anticipated the adoption to have a material impact on their next set of financial statements. 

When selecting the sample of ten for this report, we included some 31 March 2018 year-end accounts and we have only included companies in the software and mobile telecommunications industry for which the adoption of IFRS 15 is expected to have a greater impact.  The new standard sets out five core principles that preparers should following when judging how to recognise revenue from longer-term contracts. In these two industries, companies often offer customers multi-year service contracts with equipment offered for no or a low fee. Under previous rules, there were a greater number of options available to companies, whereas IFRS 15 is considerably more prescriptive, and requires companies to split the revenue from these contracts based on the performance of the contract.

This report also includes some discussion of Capita Plc, which has early adopted the standard.

 

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.
