The amendments respond to comments received by the IFRS Interpretations Committee and are intended to improve the usefulness of information about these financial assets that the new Standard requires.
Commenting on the proposals, Hans Hoogervorst, Chairman of the International Accounting Standards Board, said:
These proposed minor amendments to the Standard respond to comments received about the accounting for prepayment options under IFRS 9 and are consistent with the Board’s enhanced focus on supporting implementation of major new Standards.
The comment deadline is 24 May 2017.
