IASB Exposure Draft on Measurement of Liabilities in IAS 37: Proposed amendments to IAS 37
The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has issued Exposure Draft on Measurement of Liabilities in IAS 37: Proposed amendments to IAS 37 with the following objectives:
- To align the criteria in IAS 37 for recognising a liability with those in other IFRSs.
- To eliminate some differences between IAS 37 and US generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP)—in particular, differences in the time at which entities recognise costs of restructuring their businesses.
- To clarify the measurement of liabilities in IAS 37.
