There is a general view that financial reports have become too complex and difficult to read and that financial reporting tends to focus more on compliance than communication. At the same time, users tolerance for sifting through information to find what they need continues to decline. To demonstrate what companies could do to make their financial report more relevant, we've 'streamlined' the financial report to reflect some of the best practices that have been emerging globally over the past few years. In particular:
- Information is organised to clearly tell the story of financial performance and make critical information more prominent and easier to find.
- Additional information is included where it is important for an understanding of the performance of the company.
This latest edition includes:
- Illustrative disclosures to reflect the adoption of IFRS 9, 'Financial instruments' and IFRS 15, 'Revenue from contracts with customers', and to explain the impact of the changes in accounting policy.
