Roundtable Consultation: AcSB Exposure Draft on Agriculture

September 25, 2018.

In July 2018, the Accounting Standards Board (AcSB) released an exposure draft “Agriculture” and is seeking stakeholder input on this proposed new standard.

Currently, there is a significant diversity in practice regarding the accounting for biological assets.  The AcSB has been informed that this diversity is causing significant problems for a number of stakeholders – primarily financial statement users.

Issues to be addressed by the new standard include:

  • when a biological asset should be recognized;
  • how it should be measured on initial recognition;
  • how it should be measured in subsequent periods;
  • how agricultural produce should be accounted for; and
  • what disclosures should be required.

A roundtable consultation provides stakeholders with an opportunity to provide their opinions directly with the standard setters.  Participants are expected to have reviewed the pre-reading materials and be prepared to share their opinions.  Roundtables are not PD, however, would be eligible for verifiable CPD, as appropriate.
