IASB Simplifies Financial Reporting for Eligible Subsidiary Companies with New IFRS Accounting Standard

The International Accounting Standard Board (IASB) has issued a new IFRS Accounting Standard for subsidiaries. IFRS 19 Subsidiaries without Public Accountability: Disclosures permits eligible subsidiaries to use IFRS Accounting Standards with reduced disclosures. Applying IFRS 19 will reduce the costs of preparing subsidiaries’ financial statements while maintaining the usefulness of the information for users of their financial statements.

When a parent company prepares consolidated financial statements that comply with IFRS Accounting Standards, its subsidiaries are required to report to the parent using IFRS Accounting Standards. However, for their own financial statements, subsidiaries are permitted to use IFRS Accounting Standards, the IFRS for SMEs Accounting Standard or national accounting standards.

Subsidiaries using the IFRS for SMEs Accounting Standard or national accounting standards for their own financial statements often keep two sets of accounting records because the requirements in these Standards differ from those in IFRS Accounting Standards.

Subsidiaries using IFRS Accounting Standards for their own financial statements provide disclosures that maybe disproportionate to the information needs of their users.
