CONTENTS

Comparison with IAS 23

AASB 123 Borrowing Costs incorporates IAS 23 Borrowing Costs issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). Australian-specific paragraphs (which are not included in IAS 23) are identified with the prefix "Aus" or "RDR". Paragraphs that apply only to not-for-profit entities begin by identifying their limited applicability.

Tier 1

For-profit entities complying with AASB 123 also comply with IAS 23. Not-for-profit entities' compliance with IAS 23 will depend on whether any "Aus" paragraphs that specifically apply to not-for-profit entities provide additional guidance or contain applicable requirements that are inconsistent with IAS 23.

Tier 2

Entities preparing general purpose financial statements under Australian Accounting Standards ? Reduced Disclosure Requirements (Tier 2) will not be in compliance with IFRSs. AASB 1053 Application of Tiers of Australian Accounting Standards explains the two tiers of reporting requirements.
