OTHER COMPREHENSIVE BASIS OF ACCOUNTING (OCBOA) means a definite set of criteria, other than accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs), having substantial support underlying the preparation of financial statements prepared pursuant to that basis.

SPLIT ACCOUNTING, under IAS 39, provides that if certain conditions are met the 'embedded derivative' in a 'hybrid (combined) financial instrument' (i.e, a financial instrument which includes a non-derivative 'host contract' as well as an embedded derivative) must be accounted for separately from the 'host contract'.
