Don't miss!

On Thursday, 27 March the IASB is going to release its long expected discussion paper on post employment benefits. Don't miss IASB member Steven Cooper's live web presentation introducing the discussion paper from 1200h to 1230h (UTC). You can register for the event here.

It may be interesting to compare the IASB's position to the previously released paper of the UK ASB on the same topic. My guess is that the ASB's position will prove to be more aggressive, especially with regards to the highly controversial use of risk free interest rates to discount pension plan liabilities.
