In response to calls for enhanced disclosure effectiveness in financial statements and better communication in corporate reporting, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) is currently exploring ways to improve disclosures in financial statements. At the same time, many entities have made significant efforts over the last few years to improve the communication effectiveness of their financial reports.
In this webcast, we will discuss:
- The activities that the IASB is currently undertaking to explore how financial information can be communicated more effectively.
- Alternative ways to structure financial statements, using real-life examples.
- Tailoring of financial information, including the use of Alternative Performance Measures (APMs)
