Treasury Transactions and Financial Instruments Advisory Services

IFRS 9 fundamentally changed the accounting for financial instruments. The three key areas are Classification & Measurement (amortised cost, fair value with changes recognised in OCI or fair value with changes recognised in P&L), Impairment (forward-looking expected credit loss model) and Hedge accounting (rules have been eased in general).

Classification & Measurement

IFRS 9 requires that all financial assets are subsequently measured at:

  • Amortized cost
  • Fair value through other comprehensive income (FVOCI),
  • Fair value through profit or loss (FVPL)

Whether a financial asset is classified as amortized cost, FVOCI or FVPL is mainly based on the business model assessment and the SPPI-Test (Solely Payments of Principal & Interest).

The requirements on impairment provide institutions with more useful information in their financial statements about their expected credit losses on financial instruments. With this information institutions can notice financial risks earlier.

The standard aligns also hedge accounting more closely with the risk management activities undertaken by institutions and provides decision-useful information about an entity’s risk management strategies. The new hedge accounting model makes it possible for institutions to present their risk management activities better in their financial statements and is more principal-based than the previous IASB model. The changes on hedge accounting include the requirements for the

IFRS 9 provides an accounting policy choice: entities can either continue to apply the hedge accounting requirements of IAS 39, or they can apply IFRS 9. This is a choice banks and other financial institutions are having to take into consideration.
