Supplier Finance Arrangements: Amendments to IAS 7 Statement of Cash Flows and IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures (the Amendments) were approved for adoption by all members of the UK Endorsement Board on 28 November 2023.
A link to the Adoption Statement of the Amendments and the text of the Amendments can be found here.
The Amendments are not likely to lead to a significant change in accounting practice and do not meet the criteria for a post-implementation review under Regulation 11 in SI 2019/685.
The Amendments were published on 25 May 2023 and are effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2024, with early application permitted.
The Amendments complement the existing disclosure requirements in IFRS Accounting Standards that apply to supplier finance arrangements. They are aimed at providing users of financial statements with the information that enables them to assess the effect of supplier finance arrangements on an entity’s liabilities and cash flows, as well as on the entity’s exposure to liquidity risk.
The UKEB actively influenced the development of these amendments. Refer to work performed as part of the ‘Influencing Project’.
