In contrast, only 19 percent of respondents said they worked eight hours a day.The study also found that 82.1 percent of the respondents said they did not get overtime pay.These employees worked beyond the normal operational hours due to excessive workloads.Of…last_img read more

first_imgLCP partner Tim Marklow said: “IFRIC 14 as it currently stands is a very problematic area. It is a small-print legal lottery where two very similar companies can have very different accounting positions thanks to minor differences in pension scheme rules.“Do the proposals in the ED help with that? They clarify some areas, but they don’t address the fundamental issue with IFRIC 14, which is that it leads to very different and inconsistent treatment between companies.“The rules are so complex I don’t think readers of the accounts and investors would be able to make sense of why companies with similar pension schemes are disclosing such different positions.”Actuarial consultants Towers Watson, however, signalled their support for the changes.“The proposed changes should reduce diversity in practice,” it said. “However, difficulties remain in interpreting the intent of IFRIC 14 with respect to unlikely or irrational actions that could potentially affect an entity’s unconditional right to a plan’s surplus.”Among the Big Four audit firms, Deloitte and KPMG broadly supported the IFRIC 14 changes. PWC and EY, however, both raised substantial concerns.In a 19 October comment letter, PWC argued: “The proposed changes to IFRIC 14 result in a mixed measurement model inconsistent with the underlying principles in lAS 19.”It went on to argue that the basis for the IFRIC 14 amendment was incompatible with the requirements of IAS 19, the standard that it interprets.“The proposed changes require an entity to anticipate possible future events (for example, plan amendments or a winding-up) initiated by the trustees,” it said. “IAS 19 precludes such events to be accounted for when they happen.“These changes appear to be driven by concerns the current guidance permits an entity to recognise a surplus that is not controlled by the entity (and therefore does not meet the definition of an asset in the IASB’s Conceptual Framework).”The IASB and its interpretations committee issued the proposed changes to IAS 19 and IFRIC 14 in June as a joint exposure draft.The IFRIC 14 changes, if they are confirmed, will restrict the surplus a DB plan sponsor can recognise in its accounts – irrespective of how likely the plan trustees are likely to seize part or all of that surplus.The proposals could also force sponsors to take account of statutory requirements that are substantively enacted when they determine the amount of surplus available for them to recognise as an asset.IFRS IC developed both the amendment to IAS 19 and to IFRIC 14.The IFRS IC’s predecessor issued IFRIC 14 in 2007 in an effort to explain the application of the standard’s asset-ceiling requirements.Paragraph 58 of IAS 19 limits the measurement of a DB asset to the “present value of economic benefits available in the form” of refunds from the plan or reductions in future contributions to the plan. IFRIC 14 also deals with the interaction between a minimum funding requirement and the restriction in paragraph 58 on the measurement of the DB asset or liability.When a DB plan sponsor applies IAS 19, it must first measure the DB obligation using the projected unit credit method on the one hand, and fair value any plan assets on the other.This calculation will produce either a DB asset or liability at the balance sheet date. Where a plan is in surplus, the sponsor recognises the lower of any surplus and the IAS 19 asset ceiling.In addition to the amendment to IFRIC 14, the IASB has also proposed a change addressing the assumptions DB plan sponsors must use in their pensions accounting following a plan amendment, settlement or curtailment.Meanwhile, the UK audit regulator, the FRC, has complicated the landscape and announced in its 2015 Corporate Reporting Review that it expects companies to make disclosures consistent with the requirements of the as yet unfinalised ED.The FRC said: “Until the ED is finalised and effective, and IAS 19 and IFRIC 1421 are amended, we would expect companies to disclose any significant accounting judgements made when assessing trustees’ rights, including the extent to which their policies are consistent with the ED.”Although the FRC has no legal basis to enforce the exposure draft’s requirements, its approach does follow the requirements of IAS 1, which requires entities to disclose critical judgements and areas where there are uncertainties affecting the reported numbers.Alongside the furore in some quarters over the IFRIC 14 changes, the IASB’s proposed amendment to IAS 19 aimed at addressing the accounting for a plan settlement or curtailment has also received a mixed response.LCP’s Tim Marklew said: “They are just unnecessarily tinkering. The current rules work fine, and these new rules on remeasuring pension schemes are simply unnecessary.”Auditors KPMG, however, supports the proposal “because it would result in more useful and precise information and would not be costly to preparers, as the information is already available for the remeasurement required under paragraph 99 of IAS 19.”The IFRS IC is likely to revisit the exposure draft and decide on the next steps on the project at its scheduled January 2016 meeting. Consultants and auditors have given the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and its interpretations committee no clear sense of the way forward on proposed changes to pensions accounting under international standards.The proposals affect International Accounting Standard 19, Employee Benefits (IAS 19) and its accompanying guidance, International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee 14 (IFRIC 14), which addresses the IAS 19 asset-ceiling test and surplus recognition.In a further twist, the UK audit regulator, the Financial Reporting Council (FRC), has weighed into the debate and said it expects UK-listed companies to pay heed to the guidance in the run-up to the year’s annual reporting season.Consultant actuaries Lane Clark and Peacock (LCP) have hit out at the changes to IFRIC 14 and IAS 19.last_img read more

first_imgLeicester City forward Demarai Gray has confirmed that he is ready to sign a new deal with the Foxes.Gray produced his best display in a Leicester City shirt to inspire the team to a 2-0 home victory over Everton in new manager Claude Puel’s first game in charge.Speaking on his contractual situation, Gray revealed that the parties involved wanted the managerial uncertainty surrounding the club to be resolved before any talk of a new deal.In his words, he said:“We wanted to see who the new manager was, a bit of stability, but I’m happy playing football here.”“It’s for my representative and the backroom staff to deal with. All I can do is what I’ve done [against Everton]. When they give me the phone call we’ll get it sorted.” he added.The England Under-21 international joined the club from Birmingham City for £3.7m in January 2016 and Sunday’s game against Everton was only his 12th league start in addition to a whooping 39 substitute appearances.Speaking further, Gray said:“I’ve always said I’m ready to play and I’ve waited a long time.”“Hopefully now this can be a start of a run of games for me.“It’s what I need, to get some confidence and momentum myself and most importantly develop as a player.” he concluded.RelatedTammy Abraham Gets England Call UpSeptember 29, 2017In “England”Premier League Review (Sunday): New Manager, Same Result For Everton As South Coast Derby Ends In StalemateOctober 30, 2017In “England”Craig Shakespeare latest casualty of Leicester City title hangoverOctober 18, 2017In “England”last_img read more

first_imgLast month’s inaugural Formula 1 Esports Series final was an enthralling event, but it proved just as engaging as it was entertaining, with over 20.5 million impressions recorded.The statistic, released yesterday, is a formidable figure, especially for an esport that is still in its infancy. For the F1’s project to have had such an impact will surely have already justified its existence – few other marketing methods are as engrossing as a competitive, virtual version of your tournament to introduce spectators to your sport.It will have certainly helped that the final itself, played on the FIA’s official videogame of their World Championship – Codemaster’s F1 2017 – was a thrilling, to-and-fro affair, with Brendon Leigh’s skillful last-gasp overtake providing a fitting conclusion to a riveting race. Indeed, the spectacle was successful enough that it seemed to open the door for racing games to become an esports mainstay.Formula 1’s Esports Series final also accrued six million video views, with 1.8m on Facebook alone who watched the Brit edge out Chile’s Fabrizio Donoso Delgado and Germany’s Sven Zurner to the crown.A further 1.6 million video views on Instagram vindicated the use of the F1’s main social media pages to distribute esports content, proving that existing Formula 1 fans are interested enough to check out a gaming tournament, run on a simulated track, and with virtual vehicles.Likewise, the broadcast found popularity on traditional television networks, where almost half a million combined viewers tuned in to the semi-finals and finals in the United Kingdom alone, reaching numbers previously unseen for televised esports events in the nation. The UK was first out of the 123 countries receiving the broadcast for audience figures.Impressions of the Formula 1 Esports Series Finals, by platformHowever, as successful as the show was for supplying existing racing fans with further content, the final failed to make any real inroads on Twitch. An underwhelming total of 54,000 views (with a concurrent audience which peaked over 8,000) suggests that Formula 1 has not yet managed to crack the core of the gaming audience. That could be an issue, if enticing the affluent and diverse Twitch demographic is the focus of the esports production.There’s no need to start ringing the alarm bells just yet though – the figures from the impressions made over Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram demonstrates that the event will have certainly turned heads, and there will doubtless be individuals who became aware of the race after its conclusion. The 556,000 views currently on the YouTube video of the final race is testament to that, and with the video’s reception being overwhelmingly positive, it wouldn’t be a stretch to suggest that a fair few will return as live viewers for next year’s competition.Formula 1’s Director of Digital and New Business, Frank Arthofer, was confident that the phenomenal outreach of the final warranted further tournaments. “The audience numbers we reached with this first edition have been incredible, confirming we made the right choice when we decided to begin this new adventure for Formula 1,” he said. “The engagement with a broad and committed younger generation of F1 and esports fans is something that we are proud to support and nurture, and we look forward to establishing a season-long series in 2018.”It is evident that the Formula 1 team is not content to rest on their laurels here. Alongside a new format in the works for 2018’s Esports Series, Julian Tan, Manager of Digital Initiatives & Growth, has his eyes on appeasing the community’s growing thirst for esports content:“The audience has been great not only in terms of quantity, but also in terms of quality, with 94% of the fans who thought the Finals were exciting and 95% who would like to see F1 run more events like this one,” he said. Tan also pointed out that it is still early on after the event’s conclusion, and “all the above-mentioned figures will continue to grow.”Esports Insider says: With ‘growth’ the name of the game for Formula 1 Esports, 2018 could prove a pivotal year in the project’s progress that really sees them galvanise racing esports to greater heights. After such an impressive inaugural foray into the esports scene, who would bet against them?Formula 1 is just another example of how traditional competition can benefit from an esports venture.
