Amendments to HKFRSs 10, 11 and 12

 

 

 

 

Today the HKICPA issued amendments to HKFRS 10, Consolidated financial statements, HKFRS 11, Joint arrangements and HKFRS 12, Disclosure of interests in other entities Transition guidance, to maintain convergence of HKFRS with IFRS. The amendments are identical to those made to IFRSs 10, 11 and 12, issued by the IASB in June 2012, with the same effective date.

 

Clarified transition guidance in HKFRS 10

 

The amendments clarify that the “date of initial application” of HKFRS 10 refers to “the beginning of the annual reporting period for which the standard is applied for the first time”.  For example, if an entity with a calendar year end does not early adopt HKFRS 10, then the “date of initial application” is 1 January 2013.  The amendments also clarify which version of HKFRS 3, Business combinations, should be referred to if it is necessary to start consolidating an entity which was not previously consolidated.

 

Additional transition relief in HKFRSs 10, 11 and 12

 

The amendments provide additional transition relief by limiting the requirement to provide adjusted comparative information to the period immediately preceding the date of initial application of HKFRSs 10, 11 and 12.  Entities that provide comparatives for more than one period have the option of leaving additional comparative periods unchanged.  HKFRS 12 is further amended to remove the requirement to provide any disclosures in respect of unconsolidated structured entities for comparative periods when HKFRS 12 is adopted for the first time.

 

The amendments are effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013 (i.e. same effective date as HKFRSs 10, 11 and 12), with earlier application permitted.
