The IFRS Foundation publishes an annual report on its activities, including audited financial statements. The income comes from three main sources: The majority of the Foundation's funding is voluntary contributions from jurisdictions that have put in place national financing regimes. While funding mechanisms differ, most jurisdictions have established either a levy on companies or a system of publicly supported financing. The contribution requested from a jurisdiction is normally a percentage of the total gross domestic product of all contributing jurisdictions using the most recent International Monetary Fund data.
The Trustees of the Foundation are responsible for the organisation's funding.
