IPASB issues exposure draft for public sector specific financial instruments

The International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) has released an Exposure Draft, Public Sector Financial Instruments, Amendments to IPSAS 41, Financial Instruments, for comment. The ED provides guidance on how to account for a number of categories of financial instruments that are unique to the public sector.

The proposed new Standard will augment existing guidance in IPSAS 41, Financial Instruments, and improves that Standard’s requirements by introducing guidance on:

  • Monetary gold;
  • Currency in circulation;
  • IMF quota subscriptions; and
  • Special Drawing Rights.

“The topics addressed in this Exposure Draft are unique to the public sector and have a significant impact on government finances,” said IPSASB Chair Ian Carruthers. “The final guidance will ensure users of IPSAS-based financial statements have the information they need about these important items for accountability and decision-making purposes.”
