Detailed product information alongside relevant IFRS 9 guidelines for more streamlined implementation IFRS 9 Understanding Financial Instruments and their Accounting is a practical and informative guide to financial instruments and accounting issues in the context of the new global framework for financial reporting. The first handbook of its kind, this book provides detailed information about over eighty products alongside IFRS 9 accounting, merging the knowledge base and skill sets of two distinct functions into a single useful reference. Practical implementation guidance covers both derivative and non-derivative instruments, and real-world illustrations provide deeper insight into the everyday accounting entries and analyses that IFRS 9 entails. Readers will gain both the background knowledge and the application skills to help ease the adoption of IFRS 9 with minimal disruption to daily operations. With the exception of optional adoption of the hedge accounting requirements, the International Accounting Standards Board mandated complete IFRS 9 adoption no later than January, 2018.
The new standard replaces IAS 39, and consists of classification and measurement, impairment, and hedge accounting. Successful implementation requires an in-depth understanding of cash flows and the mechanics of financial instruments. IFRS 9 Understanding Financial Instruments and their Accounting simplifies IFRS 9 principles and explains the implementation process, helping readers to: * Understand the handling of derivative and non-derivative financial instruments * Clarify IFRS disclosure requirements and suggested accounting entries * Examine the correlation and divergence between IFRS 9 and IAS 39 frameworks * Understand the impact of transitioning from IAS 39 to IFRS 9 * Develop an effective IFRS implementation strategy with understanding of the requirements and procedures Existing coverage of IFRS 9 tends to be restrictive, with little attention paid to product guidance, leaving a gap in the knowledge required for successful worldwide adoption. This book fills that gap, providing a complete resource with full explanation and illustrative examples.
