Introduction to IFRS 9 - Impairment under IFRS 9

Financial instruments are pervasive across all reporting entities and even more so in the financial services sector. In the nineties, there were a lot of problems with the accounting for financial instruments. In response to that the IASB issued IAS 39. However, the global financial crisis of 2008 has shown us that simplifications to the complex IAS 39 were necessary, so the IAS 39 has been replaced by IFRS 9 effective as of 1 January 2018. There are a number of IFRS standards that are relevant to financial instruments. 

This module is part of the financial instruments' accounting treatment related e-learning series.
