Applicable in preparing and presenting general purpose financial statements (consolidated, separate and individual) Doesnt apply to structure and content of condensed interim financial statements prepared under IAS 34.

Fair presentation and compliance with IFRSs Fair presentation requires a faithful representation of the effects of transactions and other events. Application of IFRS with additional disclosures presumed to result in fair presentation. An explicit statement of compliance with IFRS required in its notes. In this case, it should comply with all the requirements. In extremely rare circumstances, management concludes that compliance with IFRS would be misleading as it conflicts with the objectives of the financial statements set out in the framework, the entity may depart from the requirements, if the relevant regulatory framework requires, or does not otherwise prohibit such departure. Going concern An entity must prepare financial statements on a going concern basis, unless management either intend to liquidate the entity or to cease trading or has no realistic alternative but to do so. If the entity does not prepare financials on a going concern basis it must disclose this fact together with the basis of preparation and the reason why the entity is not considered a going concern. Accrual basis of accounting: Must prepare on accrual basis, except for the cash flow statement Materiality and aggregation: present separately each material class of similar item. Dissimilar items should be presented separately unless immaterial. Offsetting: shall not offset assets & liabilities or income & expenses, unless required/permitted by an IFRS. Frequency of reporting: at least annually; if end of reporting period changes & statements presented for period shorter/longer than one year, disclose reason for period change & a statement that financial statements are not entirely comparable. Comparative information: except when permitted or required otherwise, an entity shall disclose comparative information in respect of previous periods for all amounts reported in the current period. Comparative amounts should be adjusted for any reclassifications. Consistency of presentation: retain presentation & classification of items over periods, unless it is apparent another presentation or classification is more appropriate or a other IFRS requires a change in presentation
