Announcement No.15/2555

The following amendments are made in two standards and one guideline:

1) TAS104: Accounting for Troubled Debt Restructurings

The FAP has removed the requirement to present gains from debt restructuring as extra-ordinary items.

2) TFRS5: Non-Current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations

The announcement corrects the name of the financial statement which presents the result of operation of discontinued operations from ‘Statement of Financial Position’ to ‘Statements of Comprehensive Income’.

3) Guideline of Accounting for Lease Rights

In order to be in line with TAS1: Presentation of Financial Statements, the requirement to present the lease in a separate line in the statement of financial position has been withdrawn.
