Accounting standards

Introduction

This table lists in numeric order only the latest version (by operative date) of each Accounting Standard. Some of these versions will apply mandatorily only to future reporting periods, but may be applied early. Use the Search pronouncements by reporting period page to find the version of each Standard that applies to any particular reporting period.

Where a Standard has been amended and a compiled version has been prepared, the compiled version is listed below. The original Standard (including the Preface) and any previous compiled version can be found using the Browse for pronouncements page (select "no" for "Show only most recent"). Amending Pronouncements not yet fully compiled are listed below, as well as those that have been compiled for recent periods. Use the Search for a specific document page to find individual, or lists of, Amending Pronouncements.

The Notes column below identifies when the Standard listed is a compiled version. "Extra" identifies when additional IASB supporting material (e.g. Basis for Conclusions) is available. The date shown in the Issue Date column is either the date the Standard was made by the AASB or the date of the most recent amendment by the AASB included in the compiled version. The Operative Date indicates the beginning (or end) of the first annual reporting period to which the version of the Standard applies.
