Hi everyone,

would anyone happen to know if IAS 17 (Leasing) is available in English on the internet?

I have a document here that quotes liberally from the German IAS 17 translation and am tasked with translating those quotes into English. Naturally, translating the quotes doesn't really makes sense, as IAS is originally in English ...

PDFs also available Feb 15, 2007

In addition to the HTML versions referred to by Steffen, you can also download PDF versions of the EU IFRSs. You will find the PDF containing IAS 17 in English at:


For the German, substitute DE for EN in the link above.

(click on the figure 1 at the right in each case).

There are also consolidated PDFs containing all Standards and Interpretations endorsed by the EU as of August 2006.

Note, though, that the EU versions of IFRSs available freely online are not the full IFRSs, so for example the EU version of IAS 17 Leases does not contain the Basis for Conclusions (BC) or the Implementation Guidance.
