Users and regulators often require companies to provide combined and/or carve-out financial statements because they can provide meaningful, relevant, and useful information. But preparing them can be challenging and require considerable judgement.
Combined and/or carve-out financial statements are not addressed specifically in IFRS® Standards, which has caused local practices to develop, often through discussions with regulators. This global diversity in practice means that management face unique challenges when preparing combined and/or carve-out financial statements and often need to apply significant judgement.
