Post Re: Pensions
What is the difference between projected benefit obligation (PBO) and accumulated benefit obligation (ABO)?

What is the name for the pension liability under IFRS?

ABO
Actuarial PV of benefits attributed by the pension benefit formula to employee service rendered before a specified date based on employee service and current and past compensation levels.

PBO
Actuarial PV of all benefits attributed by the pension benefit formula to employee service rendered before a specified date based on assumptions as to future compensation levels.

Under IFRS, the pension plan liability is the defined benefit obligation (DBO).

Define funded status

Companies with defined benefit pension plans must report funded status on the balance sheet.

Fair Value of Plan Assets
<PBO>
Funded Status

Overfunded = Report as noncurrent asset.

Underfunded = Report as a current liability (extent that benefits payable in the next 12 months exceed the FV of the plan's assets), a noncurrent liability, or both.

How are changes in the funded status from unrecognized pension gains and losses and unrecognized prior service costs reported on the financial statements under U.S. GAAP and IFRS?

U.S. GAAP
Recognized as components of other comprehensive income in the period incurred, with the related tax effects. Then reclassified to net periodic pension cost as amortized.

IFRS
Reported in the footnotes in the period incurred. Recognized on the balance sheet (pension asset/liability) and net periodic pension cost through amortization.
