Exposure Draft 60, Public Sector Combinations

Jan 28, 2016 | Exposure Drafts and Consultation Papers

Comments due by: Jun 30, 2016

The International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board® (IPSASB®) has issued Exposure Draft 60, Public Sector Combinations.

This Exposure Draft classifies public sector combinations as either amalgamations or acquisitions, using a rebuttable presumption approach that takes into account control and other factors. The ED proposes the use of the “modified pooling of interests” method of accounting for amalgamations, while the “acquisition” method of accounting (which involves measuring assets and liabilities at fair value) is proposed for acquisitions.

An At a Glance summary document provides an overview of the Exposure Draft.
