Although the impact of IFRS 9 Financial Instruments is monumental for banking institutions, virtually all other entities have some form of financial instruments on their balance sheet, and therefore need to consider the impact of IFRS 9 relative to their current accounting under IAS 39.
Despite being an accounting standard, its implementation should be on everyone’s agenda and not be considered as a pure accounting or compliance exercise. This is particularly important for entities that hold a significant amount of financial instruments for which the disruption could be quite substantial and where the implementation may present a number of challenges.
In this continually changing environment, board and audit committee members need more than ever to stay abreast of developments and consider how they impact their entities. Early and comprehensive oversight by the board and audit committee in the development of an IFRS implementation program can help ensure the program has the appropriate level of management’s attention.
During this event, EY panelists will present how far reaching IFRS 9 can be, explore some of the key issues faced by entities in implementing IFRS 9 and highlight the roles and responsibilities of those charged with governance in this process.
Join our subject-matter professionals as they present:
- Transition to IFRS 9 – What should you know?
