IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements prescribes the basis for presentation of general purpose financial statements to ensure comparability both with the entity’s financial statements of previous periods and with the financial statements of other entities. It sets out overall requirements for the presentation of financial statements, guidelines for their structure and minimum requirements for their content.
This Exposure Draft is the result of one of the short-term projects under the Disclosure Initiative. The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has published this Exposure Draft of proposed amendments to IAS 1 which proposes narrow-focus clarifying amendments to IAS 1 to address some of the concerns expressed about existing presentation and disclosure requirements and to ensure entities are able to use judgement when applying that Standard.
