Current Issues in Pensions Financial Reporting - 30 June 2018

Published by Martin Hooper on

Our latest Current Issues in Pensions Financial Reporting newsletter details the key financial assumptions required for determining pension liabilities under the FRS102 (UK non-listed), IAS19 (EU listed) and ASC715 (US listed).

There are a number of considerations for company directors to take into account when setting these assumptions and for auditors in determining whether the assumptions are appropriate.  This briefing sets out some of the technical issues relevant to those involved in the preparation and the audit of pension disclosures.

Key findings:

  • discount rates are expected to be higher than last year; reducing liabilities
  • falls in inflation expectations will also contribute to a reduction in liabilities
  • moving to the latest Continuous Mortality Investigation (CMI) 2017 mortality projection model also leads to a small reduction in liabilities
