The IASB has issued amendments to IFRS 9, IAS 39, IFRS 7, IFRS 4 and IFRS 16 that address issues arising during the reform of benchmark interest rates including the replacement of one benchmark rate with an alternative one. Given the pervasive nature of IBOR-based contracts, the amendments could affect companies in all industries. The amendments are effective from 1 January 2021. This publication provides guidance on how to apply the Phase 2 amendments to various contracts and hedge accounting relationships, including the interaction with the Phase 1 reliefs for hedge accounting.
