Disclosure Concessions available for Tier 2 For-profits for NZ IFRS 16 and NZ IAS 7

The New Zealand Accounting Standards Board (NZASB) has issued RDR NZ IFRS 16 and NZ IAS 7 which contain the reduced disclosure requirements (RDR) concessions for Tier 2 for-profit entities applying:

  • NZ IFRS 16 Leases; and
  • NZ IAS 7 Statement of Cash Flows as amended by Disclosure Initiative (Amendments to NZ IAS 7).

When the above two standards were released in 2016, they did not include any RDR concessions. This amending standard is thus useful to Tier 2 for-profit entities as it reduces the disclosure requirements contained in those standards, when RDR concessions are applied.

The standard (available here) is effective for periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019, with early adoption permitted.
