IASB reviews IFRS 3: Business Combinations
Released 26 June 2020
The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) is carrying out a research project to consider filling a gap in IFRS 3: Business Combinations, by improving the comparability and transparency of reporting on combinations of businesses under common control.
IFRS 3 covers how to account for mergers and acquisitions between unrelated parties but it does not cover combinations of businesses under common control.
The Board plans to publish a discussion paper to seek public feedback on its views later this year.
