Proposed Interim Release Package 2 on the IFRS Taxonomy 2013 published for public comment

15 January 2014

The IFRS Foundation has published today for public comment the Proposed Interim Release Package 2 on the IFRS Taxonomy 2013.

IFRS Taxonomy interim releases contain additional taxonomy concepts that reflect new IFRSs and improvements to IFRSs published by the IASB, thereby allowing entities wishing to report electronically using the latest IFRSs to do so without the need for these entities to create their own taxonomy concepts. They may also contain technical updates, new common practice elements or general taxonomy improvements. 

This proposed interim release facilitates an accelerated timeline for the release of the IFRS Taxonomy 2014. The final version of the IFRS taxonomy 2014 is expected to be published in early March 2014.  

The Proposed Interim Release Package 2 incorporates three interim release documents for public consultation:

For XBRL files, the IFRS Taxonomy Illustrated, versioning reports, element definitions in Excel and other supporting materials, click here.
Please note that these files do not include the taxonomy amendments relating to Annual Improvements to IFRSs 2010 - 2012 Cycle. These will be incorporated within the annual IFRS Taxonomy 2014 files.

Please note that the technical architecture of this release is based on the Proposed Interim Release Package 1 for the IFRS Taxonomy 2013 issued in September 2013. As a result of comments received on that Proposed Interim Release a number of changes will be made to the implementation of the architecture in the IFRS Taxonomy 2014. An advanced description of the final technical architecture is available here. Although we are not formally requesting feedback, we would like to hear of any cases for which you would consider that these amendments adversely affect your filing or consumption system.

The IASB IFRS Taxonomy team will be holding a webinar in the morning and afternoon of Tuesday 28 January 2014 to provide details and answer questions related to this interim release.
