In mid-July, the European adoption process for IFRS 17 took a big step forward when the Accounting Regulatory Committee voted to endorse the new standard. EU endorsement is now expected in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Beyond the GAAP no.156 - June 2021
At the end of June, Hans Hoogervorst, Chair of the International Accounting Standards Board, has stepped down after a 10-year tenure. Andreas Barckow, who has previously served on several IFRS Foundation advisory bodies, has taken over for a first mandate as head of the IASB as of 1 July.

A major development this month is the publication of a proposed amendment to IFRS 16 in the light of the ongoing public health crisis: the practical expedient that was rushed through by the IASB last spring may now be applied to rent concessions granted up to 30 June 2022, rather than 30 June 2021.
Beyond the GAAP no.151 - January 2021
2021 opens with a relatively stable IFRS framework in which to prepare the consolidated financial statements for this financial year, given the limited number and scope of the standards coming into force on 1 January.
