IFRS 8 summary and timeline

A summary of IFRS 8 Operating Segments, including information on current proposals and a timeline of past amendments, announcements, exposure drafts and consultations.

Summary

IFRS 8 requires operating segments to be identified on the basis of internal reports about components of an entity that are regularly reviewed by the chief operating decision maker in order to allocate resources and assess performance. Where operating segments meet quantitative thresholds, segment information is required to be disclosed. General information about how the entity identified its operating segments and information about products and services is also required.
