21st Extract from the EECS’s Database of Enforcement

Tags: IFRS

The decisions included in this extract were taken by national enforcers in the period from June 2015 to February 2017.

ESMA is publishing extracts from its confidential database of enforcement decisions on financial statements, with the aim of strengthening supervisory convergence and providing issuers and users of financial statements with relevant information on the appropriate application of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)./p>

The publication of selected enforcement decisions informs market participants about which accounting treatments European enforcers may consider as complying with IFRS; i.e. whether the treatments considered are within the accepted range of those permitted by IFRS. Such publication, together with the rationale behind the decisions, will contribute to a consistent application of IFRS in the EEA./p>

In accordance with the provisions of the ESMA Guidelines on the enforcement of financial information, cases submitted to the enforcement database are considered to be appropriate for publication if they fulfil one or more of the following criteria:

  • The decision refers to a complex accounting issue or an issue that could lead to different applications of IFRS;
  • The decision relates to a relatively widespread issue among issuers or within a certain type of business and, thereby, may be of interest to other enforcers or third parties;
  • The decision addresses an issue on which there is no experience or on which enforcers have inconsistent experiences;
  • The decision has been taken on the basis of a provision not covered by an accounting standard.
