Solutions to Gripping IFRS: Graded Questions Presentation of financial statements Chapter 3: Page 1 Solution 3.1 a) Components of a complete set of financial statements A complete set of financial statements comprises: a statement of financial position as at the end of the period; a statement of comprehensive income for the period; a statement of changes in equity for the period; a statement of cash flows for the period; notes, comprising a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information; and a statement of financial position as at the beginning of the earliest comparative period when an entity applies an accounting policy retrospectively or makes a retrospective restatement of items in its financial statements, or when it reclassifies items in its financial statements. b) Reasons for the introduction of a statement of comprehensive income The main objective of the International Accounting Standards Board in revising IAS 1 was to aggregate information in the financial statements on the basis of shared characteristics. With this in mind, the Board considered it useful to separate changes in equity of an entity during a period arising from: transactions with owners in their capacity as owners other changes in equity. Consequently, the Board decided that all owner changes in equity should be presented in the statement of changes in equity, separately from non-owner changes in equity All non-owner changes in equity (ie comprehensive income) are required to be presented in one statement of comprehensive income. Components of comprehensive income are not permitted to be presented in the statement of changes in equity.
