The International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) today released for comment the Consultation Paper, Public Sector Combinations. The IPSASB considers guidance on reporting public sector combinations necessary to meet the objectives of financial reporting, which are to provide information that is useful to users of General Purpose Financial Reports (GPFRs) for accountability and decision-making purposes.
