IAS 20 Accounting for Government Grants and Disclosure of Government Assistance prescribes the accounting for receipt of government grants and outlines the disclosure requirements for other government assistance. Government grants are recognised in profit or loss on a systematic basis over the periods in which the entity recognises expenses for the related costs for which the grants are intended to compensate. IAS 20 also prescribes disclosure requirements which need to be presented in the financial statements for those entities in receipt of government grants and government assistance. The standard also prescribes the accounting requirements for repayment of such grants. In this session we shall also be discussing specific types of grants such as low-interest loans and future developments for this standard.
