The AASB have amended AASB 15 and AASB 1058 to permit not-for-profit entities to apply those Standards to research grants for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 July 2019 instead of 1 January 2019. This will provide an extended implementation period for entities with December year-ends for research grants received. The application of AASB 15 and AASB 1058 to other sources of income is not extended. The option to extend the implementation period applies at the entity level and is not available on an individual research grant basis.
