Related party relationships are a normal feature of commerce and business. For example, entities frequently perform part of their activities through subsidiaries, joint ventures, and associates. In those circumstances, the entity has the ability to affect the financial and operating policies of the investee through the presence of control, joint control, or significant influence.
For these reasons, knowledge of an entity’s transactions, outstanding balances, including commitments, and relationships with related parties may affect assessments of its operations by users of financial statements, including assessments of the risks and opportunities facing the entity.
Under U.S. GAAP, related party transactions need to be disclosed in the financial statements. If there are no transactions, nothing else is required to be included.
However, under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), the requirement is that a related party relationship needs to be disclosed even if there is no transaction between the reporting entity and the related party.
The purpose of the IFRS requirement is to ensure that an entity’s financial statements contain the disclosures necessary to draw attention to the possibility that its financial position and profit or loss may have been affected by the existence of related parties and by transactions and outstanding balance including commitments, with such parties.
