Preface

Standards amended by AASB 2017-5

This Standard makes amendments to AASB 10 Consolidated Financial Statements (July 2015), AASB 128 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures (August 2015) and the other Standards and Interpretation listed in paragraph 1 of the Standard.

These amendments relate to International Financial Reporting Standard Effective Date of Amendments to IFRS 10 and IAS 28, issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) in December 2015, as well as a range of editorial corrections.

Main features of this Standard

Main requirements

This Standard defers the mandatory effective date (application date) of amendments to AASB 10 and AASB 128 that were originally made in AASB 2014-10 Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards – Sale or Contribution of Assets between an Investor and its Associate or Joint Venture so that the amendments are required to be applied for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2022 instead of 1 January 2018. 

The amendments in AASB 2014-10 originally applied to annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2016, but were later deferred by the IASB indefinitely. Due to legal implications, the AASB is unable to defer the amendments indefinitely, and instead deferred the amendments to apply to annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018 through AASB 2015-10 Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards – Effective Date of Amendments to AASB 10 and AASB 128. As the IASB’s amendments continue to be deferred indefinitely, this Standard further defers the amendments to annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2022.

This Standard also makes various editorial corrections to Australian Accounting Standards.

Application date

This Standard applies to annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018.  Earlier application is permitted.
