IFRS 9: Accounting advisory related to financial instruments
IFRS 9 Financial Instruments brings fundamental change to financial instrument accounting as it replaces IAS 39 and introduces new method of classifications and the expected credit loss model. Our specialists explain the new expected credit loss model for financial asset impairment, the impact of the business model on accounting and the consequences of fewer categories for assets. There are a number of decisions and choices to be made at transition to the new standard but some good news: hedge accounting rules have been eased. Banks and financial institutions are most affected but corporates need to consider the new requirements as well.
IFRS 15: New revenue standard
The new standard’s core principle requires entities to recognise revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in amounts that reflect the consideration (payment) to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. This new standard significantly increases complexity around the recognition of revenue, meaning that in a significant number of industries the invoiced amount will not correspond to the pattern of revenue recognition
FRS 16: New leases standard
The new Leases standard will affect almost all organisations as practically all organisations are involved in leasing arrangements. Applying the new standard is expected to result in a gross up of the balance sheet, and possibly change the timing of when rent and other lease related expenses must be accounted for and where in the profit and loss statement they must be presented. The new standard will affect almost all performance indicators used in practice, such as gearing ratio, liquidity ratio, interest coverage ratio, EBITDA, operating profit/loss, net profit/loss, EPS, ROCE, ROE and the operating cash flow.
IFRS 3: Accounting advisory related to corporate acquisitions
In today's dynamically changing economic environment, the number of corporate and shareholding acquisitions and transformations of multinational companies are constantly on the rise. Companies that prepare their consolidated financial statements according to the IFRS standards and are concerned by any group level acquisition or transformation often find it challenging to recognise these transactions appropriately under IFRS. Accounting calculations and disclosures related to the allocation of the purchase price require wide experience and an accurate knowledge of related IFRS rules.
IFRS 17: New Insurance standard
The IASB finished its long-standing project on insurance contracts accounting and published IFRS 17, ‘Insurance contracts’ on 18 May 2017 to replace IFRS 4, which currently permits a wide variety of practices in accounting for insurance contracts. The issuers of insurance contracts will need to use consistent measurement models based on current assumptions at a more granular level. Both the income statement and balance sheet will change. Both the income statement and balance sheet will change.
