Here is a summary of the main matters considered.

2018 NZ Conceptual Framework issued

The NZASB has issued the New Zealand Equivalent to the IASB Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting (2018 NZ Conceptual Framework) and Amendments to References to the Conceptual Framework in NZ IFRS.

Both the 2018 NZ Conceptual Framework and the amending standard are effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2020.

This revised conceptual framework sets out the fundamental concepts of financial reporting that guide the development of NZ IFRS. It helps to ensure that standards are conceptually consistent and that similar transactions are treated the same way. 

It also assists entities to develop accounting policies when no NZ IFRS applies to a particular transaction.

Amendments to the Scope of FRS-42

The NZASB has issued Amendments to the Scope of FRS-42.  This amends the scope of FRS-42 Prospective Financial Statements so that it applies only to an entity that is required by legislation or regulation to prepare general purpose prospective financial statements in accordance with generally-accepted accounting practice (GAAP).

The amending standard is effective for prospective financial statements published on or after 1 January 2019.
