Disclosure of the impact of IFRS 16

In May 2018, Company Reporting reviewed IFRS 16 disclosures for a sample of 20 listed companies with 31 December 2017 year ends (New standard disclosure – IFRS 16 Leases). No early adopters were found in the sample. Only two companies quantified the expected impact and there was great variety in the level of detail provided, with many not meeting the expectations set by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) in its Annual Review of Corporate Governance and Reporting 2017/2018.

This report reviews the IFRS 16 disclosures for 20 listed companies, selected at random, with 31 December 2018 year ends to determine to what extent such findings are repeated, or whether additional quantification and detail is now being disclosed.
