Private Enterprises, NFPO and Pension Plans

Flash

Flash bulletins provide a summary of the most recent news and publications from standard setters on accounting standards for private enterprises (ASPE), not-for-profit organizations (NFPO) and pension plans. International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are not covered by the Flash bulletins, but we issue IFRS Newsletters, dedicated exclusively to new IFRS developments, and Adviser Alerts on specific topics of importance.
This publication is intended to inform readers about recent changes in accounting; however, it cannot deal with all topics. Readers are always encouraged to refer to the original publications mentioned in the articles before making any decisions.

The newsletter then moves on to a round-up of IFRS-related news at Grant Thornton, and a more general round-up of activities affecting the IASB. We end with an overview of the implementation dates of newer standards, some of them being not yet effective, and the proposals that the IASB currently has out for comment.
