Our Guides to financial statements help organizations prepare financial statements in accordance with IFRS Standards. They have three components: 

  • Illustrative disclosures, which illustrate one possible format for financial statements, based on a fictitious multinational corporation; 
  • Disclosure checklist, which identifies the disclosures that may be required based on currently effective standards; and
  • COVID-19 supplement, which illustrates additional disclosures that companies may need to provide on accounting issues arising from the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

 

These guides will help organizations to tell their story based on their specific circumstances: they will help ensure that the organization’s financial reporting provides the information that users need, through clear, meaningful and specific disclosures.
