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.

FRS 101 "Reduced disclosure framework"- A review of application in parent company accounts of IFRS groups

The preparation of parent company financial statements is something that all consolidated IFRS groups have to consider. In light of the great level of recent change in this area in the UK this represents a one-off report giving guidance on the preparation of parent company financial statements under FRS 101 "Reduced Disclosure Framework". It focuses on UK groups that prepare IFRS consolidated accounts.

The report sets out the key findings from our review of the first-time application of FRS 101 “Reduced Disclosure Framework” by a group of 29 parent companies that prepare consolidated financial statements under IFRS.  We consider a number of points including: how companies informed shareholders of the intention to implement FRS 101; the format of the primary financial statements; disclosure of the list of exemptions taken; the concept of equivalent disclosure in the consolidated financial statements; the length of company financial statements under FRS 101; and changes in accounting policy on adoption.
