Adoption of IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers

IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (IFRS 15) has replaced existing international revenue standards IAS 18 Revenue and IAS 11 Construction Contracts, as well as revenue related IFRIC and SIC interpretations, for periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018.

Croner-i has been tracking the disclosures made in relation to the forthcoming adoption of IFRS 15 through these Common Practice reports. Firstly in March 2018 looking at the disclosure of the impacts of the forthcoming standard in annual reports, and then again in September 2018 when the report focussed on the software and telecommunications industries which were expected to be most impacted.

This report looks at a selection of December 2018 and January 2019 year ends where full year disclosures in relation to the actual adoption of IFRS 15 are being made for the first time. This report covers both the impact of the adoption of IFRS 15, and what disclosures have been made in relation to the adoption.

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.

The classification of acquisition transaction costs, an emerging issue under IFRS

This report focuses on companies’ presentation of acquisition-related costs both in the income and cash flow statements. More specifically it considers where such costs are reflected in the income statement and whether they are identified as operating or investing in nature within the cash flow statement.
