The IFRS Interpretations Committee (IFRIC) Agenda Decisions have the potential to significantly impact those producing or overseeing financial statements, and provide a useful insight for those reading them.

In the past couple of years the number of Agenda Decisions and their content has increased, along with their prominence. In this short session, Matt Tilling, will introduce the IFRS Interpretation Committee (IFRIC) Agenda Decisions. We will discuss how they are produced, why they are now more important than ever and highlight some of the decisions that have already been published, such as determining lease terms under IFRS 16 and accounting for holdings of cryptocurrencies. We will also look at how you can stay up to date with what is happening. The content is at a high level and will also be of interest to those who just want to learn more about the IFRS and its operation.
