World Council Responds to IFRS Foundation’s Consultation Paper on Sustainability Reporting

In September 2020, the International Accounting Standards Board requested stakeholders to respond to the IFRS Foundation’s questions on sustainability reporting found in their Consultation Paper on Sustainability Reporting. The consultation paper hoped to address concerns surrounding consistency and comparability in sustainability reporting.  According to the IFRS, “A set of comparable and consistent standards will allow businesses to build public trust through greater transparency of their sustainability initiatives, which will be helpful to investors and an even broader audience in a context in which society is demanding initiatives to combat climate change.”

World Council Comments on IASB Discussion Paper on Business Combinations

The International Accounting Standards Board requested comment on their Discussion Paper regarding Business Combinations – Disclosures, Goodwill and Impairment. World Council supported the adoption of the scheduled goodwill amortization as well as simplifications offered for the impairment test, but urged the disclosure of scheduled goodwill amortization as a separate item outside of the operating result. World Council expressed concern that this disclosure would “require the disclosure of internal confidential information that, if disclosed, could operate to the detriment of a company.”

WOCCU Urges IASB to Expand IFRS for SMEs Standard

The World Council of Credit Unions urged the IASB to allow a greater use of the IFRS for SMEs Standard and in particular to make it easier for credit unions to utilize the standard.  The comments came as a part of the Request for Information on the IFRS for SMEs Standard issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. 

In particular, WOCCU noted that allowing some credit unions—especially smaller institutions and those in developing countries— would help limit excessive compliance burdens on small credit unions and reduce the burden on those smaller financial institutions in developing countries.  WOCCU urged the IASB to allow expressly the ability to state financials in conformity with the IFRS for SMEs standard noting that this could be accomplished with little effort and without defeating the purpose of the standard.
