Equity Method of Accounting - IASB Research Project
- Isabel Batista, Filipe Alves
The IASB has started a research project on the Equity Method of accounting. The objective of this research project is to understand the financial reporting issues that application of the equity method seeks to resolve by considering the circumstances in which the method is currently applied. The research project will involve a reassessment of the equity method in terms of its usefulness to investors and difficulties for preparers.
Previous EFRAG Work
