IFRS 9 has a logical, principles-based approach to measurement of financial assets based on the business model and nature of cash flows. The forward-looking impairment model requires timely recognition, and ongoing assessment of credit losses. The hedge accounting requirements are principles based and aligned to common risk management practices.
This course provides an in-depth analysis of principles in IFRS 9. The course has numerous examples and illustrations to explain the business model and cash flow characteristics test for classification of financial assets, amortised cost and fair value measurement of financial assets and financial liabilities, de-recognition of financial assets (retained servicing, continuing involvement etc.), measurement of expected credit losses and the accounting and impact of different types of hedges on financial statements. In addition, it covers the financial instruments disclosures in IFRS 7 and principles in relation to fair value measurement in IFRS 13.
The course is designed to help preparers and users of financial statements to evaluate the impact of IFRS 9 on the financial statements.
