Course Introduction

IFRS 9 For Financial Instruments

Financial accounting under the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) has a significant impact on all the industry groups. The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has substantially overhauled the accounting rules for financial instruments, which has deeply transformed the financial statements of financial and non-financial institutions. Leaders of internationally operating financial institutions factor these prospective changes into their plans today, recognizing the value of planning ahead and the needs to competitively position the organization for the future.

In this forward-looking training course, you will get an in-depth hands-on learning experience to understand the accounting of financial Instruments under IFRS 9 which has become effective from 1 January 2018.  The IFRS 9 has replaced the IAS 39 and impact the following key areas:

  • Classification and Measurement
  • Impairment Methodology
  • Hedge Accounting

The deepening integration of the key finance-related functions, from strategy and planning, through to Risk, Finance and Treasury mean that IFRS 9 will have a widespread impact across the business.  The primary impact on your overall business model and financial reporting functions will, however, arise from the changes to the Impairment Methodology.  Therefore, most organization are up against the time and have to make sure that their resources have the required knowledge and strategic understanding to deal with the implementation of IFRS 9.

The instructor will share his views and experience on the development and direction of IFRS 9, differences between the existing and modified approaches and emerging challenges for the industry.  The instructor will also discuss the implementation road map to these accounting standards and the implications these standards have for your business.

 Questions & Answers

Why you must attend?

Why you should attend?

In July 2014, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has issued the final version of IFRS 9, which combines classification and measurement, the expected credit loss impairment model and hedge accounting. The standard will eventually replace IAS 39 and all previous versions of IFRS 9.  Financial assets are measured either at amortised cost or fair value through other comprehensive income based on both the entity’s business model and the financial assets’ contractual cash flow characteristics.  Application is required for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018.

The IASB had kept the implementation date from 2018 primarily due to the fact that the banking industry had asked for 3 years’ time to implement the IFRS 9.  The implementation of IFRS 9 takes approximately two years considering the following challenges:

  • Size and complexity of the necessary changes to systems and processes;
  • Volume/Quality of data required;
  • Adoption of new classification and impairment models;
  • Impact on the capital;
  • Pool of skilled resources required for the implementation;
  • Interaction with the regulatory impairment and capital requirements; and
  • Market expectations in relation to the accounting, regulatory and taxation impacts in advance of the final standard coming into force”.
