  • The IASB will be holding two repeated live webinars on 17 August 2020 (09:00 and 15:00 (BST)) to discuss the second com­pre­hen­sive review of the IFRS for SMEs Standard.
  • In December 2019, the IASB published the exposure draft of a new standard 'General Pre­sen­ta­tion and Dis­clo­sures' that is intended to replace IAS 1 'Pre­sen­ta­tion of Financial State­ments'. The IASB is in­tro­duc­ing the exposure draft in a series of webinars.
  • The IASB  has updated its work plan, which have been analysed to see what changes have resulted since it was last revised in July 2020.
  • The IFRS Foun­da­tion has announced that due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic and the global nature of its or­ga­ni­za­tion, all meetings with advisory and con­sul­ta­tive groups will be held remotely until the end of 2020.
