Classification of Liabilities as Current or Non-Current (Amendments to IAS 1)

Background

The amendments related to this project Classification of Liabilities as Current or Non-Current (Amendments to IAS 1) were published by the IASB in January 2020. These amendments were originally effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2022, with early application permitted.

In July 2020 as a result of the covid-19 pandemic, the IASB deferred the effective date of the Amendments to IAS 1 to annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2023 with early application permitted.

The Amendments to IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements, clarify a criterion in IAS 1 for classifying a liability as non-current: the requirement for an entity to have the right to defer settlement of the liability for at least 12 months after the reporting period.

These amendments:

  • specify that an entity’s right to defer settlement must exist at the end of the reporting period;
  • clarify that classification is unaffected by management’s intentions or expectations about whether the entity will exercise its right to defer settlement of a liability;
  • clarify how lending conditions affect classification; and
  • clarify requirements for classifying liabilities an entity will or may settle by issuing its own equity instruments.
