Objective

The objective of this Standard is to prescribe the accounting and disclosure for employee benefits. The Standard requires an entity to recognise:

(a) a liability when an employee has provided service in exchange for employee benefits to be paid in the future; and

 

(b) an expense when the entity consumes the economic benefit arising from service provided by an employee in exchange for employee benefits.

Scope

1. This Standard applies to all employee benefits, except for share-based payment transactions, which are covered by MPERS 26 Share-based Payment.

 

2. Employee benefits covered by this Standard will include:

 

a) Short-term employee benefits (other than termination benefits) that are wholly due within twelve months after the end of the period in which the employees render the related service.

b) Post-employment benefits, which are employee benefits (other than termination benefits) that are payable after the completion of employment.

c) Other long-term employee benefits, which are employee benefits (other than post-employment benefits and termination benefits) that are not wholly due within twelve months after the end of the period in which the employees render the related service.’

 

d) Termination benefits, which are employee benefits payable as a result of either:

    i) An entity’s decision to terminate an employee’s employment before the normal retirement date, or

   ii) An employee’s decision to accept voluntary redundancy in exchange for those benefits.

 

3. Employee benefits also include share-based payment transactions by which employees receive equity instruments (such as shares or share options) or cash or other assets of the entity in amounts that are based on the price of the entity’s shares or other equity instruments of the entity. An entity shall apply MPERS 26 in accounting for share-based payment transactions.

 

4. Example of employee benefits include:

a) Short-term employee benefits:

   i)Wages, salaries and social security contributions;

   iii) Profit-sharing and bonuses payable within twelve months after the end of the period in which the employees render the related service;

   iv) Non-monetary benefits (such as medical care, housing, cars and free or subsidised goods or services) for current employees.
