Second Comprehensive Review of the IFRS for SMEs Standard (Agenda Paper 30)
The Board met on 14 December 2020 to discuss key messages from its outreach events, online surveys and a preliminary analysis of the comment letters on its Request for Information Comprehensive Review of the IFRS for SMEs Standard.
The Board tentatively decided to ask the SME Implementation Group (SMEIG) to:
- discuss a comprehensive summary of feedback on the Request for Information; and
- recommend what the Board should do next in its second comprehensive review of the IFRS for SMEs Standard.
All 13 Board members agreed with this decision.
At a future meeting the Board will consider any recommendations developed by the SMEIG on what the Board should do next in its second comprehensive review of the IFRS for SMEs Standard.
