IAS 26 Defined contribution plans

13 The financial statements of a defined contribution plan shall contain a statement of net assets available for benefits and a description of the funding policy.

14 Under a defined contribution plan, the amount of a participant’s future benefits is determined by the contributions paid by the employer, the participant, or both, and the operating efficiency and investment earnings of the fund. An employer’s obligation is usually discharged by contributions to the fund. An actuary’s advice is not normally required although such advice is sometimes used to estimate future benefits that may be achievable based on present contributions and varying levels of future contributions and investment earnings.

15 The participants are interested in the activities of the plan because they directly affect the level of their future benefits. Participants are interested in knowing whether contributions have been received and proper control has been exercised to protect the rights of beneficiaries. An employer is interested in the efficient and fair operation of the plan.

16 The objective of reporting by a defined contribution plan is periodically to provide information about the plan and the performance of its investments. That objective is usually achieved by providing financial statements including the following:

  1. a description of significant activities for the period and the effect of any changes relating to the plan, and its membership and terms and conditions;
  2. statements reporting on the transactions and investment performance for the period and the financial position of the plan at the end of the period; and
  3. a description of the investment policies.
