Philippine Public Sector Accounting Standard 24


PRESENTATION OF BUDGET INFORMATION
IN FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Background
This Philippine Public Sector Accounting Standard (PPSAS) 24 consists of
International Public Sector Accounting Standard (IPSAS) 24, Presentation of
Budget Information in Financial Statements, and the Philippine Application
Guidance (PAG) prepared to suit the Philippine public sector situation.
The IPSAS 24 was issued in December 2006 by the International Public
Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) of the International Federation
of Accountants (IFAC). This includes amendments resulting from IPSASs
issued up to January 15, 2012.
The PAG (in italics) provides supplementary guidance on the proper
implementation of
IPSAS 24.
Introduction to the IPSAS 24
IPSAS 24 prescribes a comparison of budget amounts and the actual
amounts arising from execution of the budget to be included in the financial
statements of entities. This Standard also requires disclosure of an
explanation of the reasons for material differences between the budget and
actual amounts. The main issue in the implementation of this Standard is
how the comparison of budget and actual amounts shall be presented in the
financial statements.
