IFRS 09 – Financial Instruments

Event Overview

IFRS 09 is the biggest single accountancy change in years. The global financial crisis has placed the banking industry under great scrutiny. One of the criticisms raised has been the way in which financial instruments were accounted for under International Accounting Standard 39, which is the predecessor to IFRS 9. It claimed that some requirements of IAS 39 did not result in the timely recognition of credit losses, sometimes called the “ too little, too late” problem. It was also claimed that IAS 39 is too complex. 

To address these criticisms: 

- The timing and measurement of impairment allowances is being changed
- The classification and measurement of financial assets is arguably being simplified 
- Some of the complexity in hedge accounting has been reduced
