New standard disclosure - IFRS 15

IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (IFRS 15) is one of two major new standards being applied from financial periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018 (the other being IFRS 9 Financial Instruments). In the years leading up to this, there has been an increased focus by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) on the disclosures setting out the impact of forthcoming accounting standards in the financial statements, as required by IAS 8 Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors (IAS 8).

The FRC commented on these disclosures in its Annual Review of Corporate Reporting for the 2016-17 year-ends (annual review), and noted in its year-end advice letter to audit committee chairs and finance directors (FRC advice letter) (attached as an appendix to the report), that it expected to see a ‘step change’ in the quality of the disclosures assessing the impact of new accounting standards in the 2017-18 financial statements.

This report analyses the disclosures assessing the impact of IFRS 15 which have been included in the consolidated financial statements of 20 UK listed companies selected at random with a focus on industries where IFRS 15 has most impact.
