IFRS 9 (Financial Instruments) – Are You Ready?


IFRS 9 (Financial Instruments) – Are You Ready?

9 October 2018, 13.00 BST/14.00 CEST
Host: Ben Moseley
Presenters: Richard Cherrett, Helen Chadwick

With a focus on companies outside of financial services, we’ll be looking at the new accounting standard governing the recognition, classification and measurement of financial instruments, IFRS 9, which replaces IAS 39 for periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018; which your organisation may already have adopted. This comes hot on the heels of New UK GAAP adoption in 2015 and law changes in 2016, and could affect the timing, and potentially the overall amount, of taxable profits and losses in respect of loans and derivatives. What issues should your organisation be looking at? We’ll discuss:

  • The main accounting changes introduced.
  • The potential tax impact using case studies representing common scenarios.
