FEE comments on the IASB Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting

In general FEE supports the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB)’s efforts to revise the Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting and update the set of concepts to use for the future development of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). A complete, updated and robust framework would assist the IASB in its standard setting process and guide preparers of financial statements in selecting accounting policies. Furthermore, an updated framework can help users of financial statements and other constituents (including the external auditors) to better understand and comprehend the principles of IFRS.

FEE has both responded to the IASB Exposure Draft and the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG)’s public consultation on this matter. For more in-depth FEE views, please see these comment letters below.
