This is to announce the differences between IFRSs as adopted for use in Taiwan and IFRSs as issued by the IASB for the 2020 consolidated financial statements.

 

Under International Financial Reporting Standards endorsed and issued into effect by the Financial Supervisory Commission of the Republic of China (Taiwan-IFRSs), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd. (The Company; “TSMC”) (NYSE:TSM) reported consolidated net income attributable to shareholders of the parent of NT$517,885 million, basic and diluted earnings per share of NT$19.97 in 2020, total assets of NT$2,760,711 million, total liabilities of NT$910,089 million, non-controlling interests of NT$965 million, and equity attributable to shareholders of the parent of NT$1,849,657 million as of December 31, 2020.

 

For the purpose of filing the annual report on Form 20-F with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Committee, TSMC prepared the consolidated financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and reported consolidated net income attributable to shareholders of the parent of NT$510,744 million, basic and diluted earnings per share of NT$19.70 in 2020, total assets of NT$2,760,601 million, total liabilities of NT$924,837 million, non-controlling interest of NT$953 million, and equity attributable to shareholders of the parent of NT$1,834,811 million as of December 31, 2020.

 

The major difference between TSMC’s 2020 consolidated financial statements on the basis of Taiwan-IFRSs and IFRSs as issued by the IASB was the timing of the recognition of R.O.C. tax on unappropriated earnings.
