A Snapshot of IFRS Standards that Would Impact Different Industries

Industry Indicative Critical Standards that would impact the industry Brief Analysis

IAS 40 is a new concept brought in by IFRS for properties that are held for rental or capital appreciation, which most industries have. No industry can escape a Business Combination, which is why IFRS 3 is in this list while IFRS 5 is a small but powerful standard on non-current assets that are held for sale. IFRS 8 changes the way segments are recognised. In the midst of wide-ranging criticism of the concept of Fair Value, IFRS 13 has been issued which attempts to bring some sanity into fair valuation.

IFRS 10 redefines the concept of control and would impact any entities in all industries that acquire stakes in others. IFRS thrives on disclosures, which will impact every industry irrespective of size.
