Last week, the OSC's Investment Funds and Structured Products Branch released a notice setting out deficiencies identified by branch staff in their preliminary review of IFRS interim financial reports for the period ending June 30, 2014.

According to staff, recurring deficiencies in IFRS filings include (i) missing IFRS 1 reconciliations; (ii) missing opening IFRS statements of financial position; and (iii) missing management report of fund performance (MRFP) disclosure.

According to the branch, these deficiencies will be addressed in comment letters to investment fund managers. The notice also reminds investment fund issuers that non-compliance could result in the issuer being added to the default list.
