    2. Why a project on presentation? Looking for a common approach (IFRS-USGAAP) convergence Clarify relationship between the financial statements Items with different characteristics lumped together (dissimilar items aggregated?) 2008 IASC Foundation. 30 Cannon Street | London EC4M 6XH | UK. www.iasb.org 2

    3. What are we doing about it?

    5. Project objectives and benefits Establish a standard that will guide the organization and presentation of information in the financial statements Provide an overall structure for financial statements that will: allow enough flexibility to communicate unique aspects of a business for preparers to better portray their business for users to understand and get the message 2008 IASC Foundation. 30 Cannon Street | London EC4M 6XH | UK. www.iasb.org 5

    8.

    10. Classification guidance Classification of A&L drives classification of changes in those items in: Statement of comprehensive income Statement of cash flows Classification based on managements approach of its business & financing activities Each entity decides the order of sections and categories same order for each statement 2008 IASC Foundation. 30 Cannon Street | London EC4M 6XH | UK. www.iasb.org 10

    11. Statement of financial position Classification of assets and liabilities in short-term and long-term subcategories unless a presentation based on liquidity provides more relevant information Not a current requirement in US GAAP IAS 1 requires current / non-current distinction 2008 IASC Foundation. 30 Cannon Street | London EC4M 6XH | UK. www.iasb.org 11

    12. Comprehensive income Single statement of comprehensive income Disaggregation by function and further by nature of relevant items Separate classification of OCI items with recycling Profit or loss relevant subtotal Taxes should be allocated to: continuing operations discontinued operations OCI items. 2008 IASC Foundation. 30 Cannon Street | London EC4M 6XH | UK. www.iasb.org 12

    13. Statement of cash flows Notion of cash equivalents would not be retained Preference for direct method of reporting cash flows Cash payments and cash receipts for operating category Instead of reconciling profit or loss to operating cash flows (indirect method) Same for investing and financing cash flows 2008 IASC Foundation. 30 Cannon Street | London EC4M 6XH | UK. www.iasb.org 13

    14. Reconciling the statements Considered: Full reconciliation of opening and closing balance sheet Show links with cash flows and comprehensive income Can be very complex Proposed: More limited reconciliation of comprehensive income and cash flow showing disaggregation into: Cash flows, accruals and systematic allocations, and recurring/non recurring remeasurements (eg fair value changes) 2008 IASC Foundation. 30 Cannon Street | London EC4M 6XH | UK. www.iasb.org 14

    15. Giving your feedback Comment on the DP Do you agree that financial statements should be cohesive? Do you agree with the proposed new structure? Should a direct method be used to determine cash flows? Does the reconciliation schedule provide useful information? 2008 IASC Foundation. 30 Cannon Street | London EC4M 6XH | UK. www.iasb.org 15
