Introduction to IAS/HKAS 34, 'Interim financial reporting'
Objective and scope
Although there is no requirement under IFRS/HKFRS for entities to publish interim financial reports, a number of territories around the world either require or recommend their publication, often stipulating that they should be prepared in accordance with IFRS/HKFRS. IAS/HKAS 34, 'Interim financial reporting', applies where an entity publishes an interim financial report in accordance with IFRS/HKFRS. It encourages publicly traded entities to prepare interim reports at least as of the end of the first half of their financial year [IAS/HKAS 34 para 1(a)].
The objective of IAS/HKAS 34 is to set out the minimum content that an interim financial report should contain and the principles that should be used in recognising and measuring the transactions and balances included in that report.
IAS/HKAS 34 recommends that interim financial reports are published within 60 days of the period end, although local legislative requirements may mandate a different timescale1 [IAS/HKAS 34 para 1(b)].
Entities may either prepare full IFRS/HKFRS financial statements (as published in their annual report), or condensed financial statements under IAS/HKAS 34. Condensed reporting is the more common approach.
IAS/HKAS 34 requires the interim financial report to contain, as a minimum:
A statement of financial position (balance sheet) as at the end of the current interim period and as at the end of the immediately preceding financial year.
A statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income for the current interim period and cumulatively for the current financial year to date (for example, the second quarter and the half year to date), with comparative statements for the comparable interim periods of the immediately preceding financial year, presented as either:
A single statement; or A separate statement of profit or loss and a statement presenting comprehensive income. A statement of changes in equity for the year to date, with a comparative statement for the comparable year-to-date period
of the immediately preceding financial year. A statement of cash flows for the year to date, with a comparative statement for the comparable year-to-date period of the
immediately preceding financial year. Selected explanatory notes. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the interim period reported, presented in the statement that presents the
components of profit or loss for an interim period (only if the entity is required to present earnings per share in accordance with IAS/HKAS 33).
[IAS/HKAS 34 paras 8, 11]
The condensed primary statements should contain, as a minimum, the main headings and sub-totals that were included in the entity's most recent full financial statements. Additional line items or notes should be included if their omission would make the condensed interim financial report misleading [IAS/HKAS 34 para 10]. PwC observation: IAS/HKAS 34 does not require the presentation in the condensed primary statements of all the line items that are required by IAS/HKAS 1, Presentation of financial statements, to be included in the primary statements in the annual financial statements; however, it is common, and considered best practice, to include them. In some countries, the extent to which line items may be aggregated in condensed interim financial statements may also be governed by local regulators or market requirements.
IAS/HKAS 34 requires additional line items or notes to be included if their omission would make the condensed interim financial report misleading [IAS/HKAS 34 para 10]. An entity may incur costs on an annual basis that are not significant enough in the context of the annual financial statements to require separate disclosure. However, such costs might be incurred unevenly during the year and require separate presentation in the condensed statement of profit or loss, thus leading to a difference in presentation between the interim financial report and the annual comparative financial statements.
1 According to MB Listing Rule 13.49(6) and 13.48(1), a MB issuer must publish its interim results announcement not later than two months after the end of that period
of six months and must send out either (i) its interim report, or (ii) its summary interim report not later than three months after the end of that period of six months.
According to GEM Listing Rule 18.53 and 18.78, a GEM issuer must publish its interim results announcement and send out either (i) its interim report, or (ii) its summary interim report not later than 45 days after the end of such period.
IAS/HKAS 34 requires comparative information to be given for all primary statements. A comparative stat
