Date: 21st & 22nd September 2020
Course delivery: Online + Live Stream Training Session


IFRS 9 is the new accounting standard for financial instruments that will have an impact on international banks and financial institutions worldwide. Numerous changes are in place, designed to make annual reports more meaningful to investors as well as simplify how auditors implement the rules and introduce safeguards to ensure that severe credit crises cannot emerge again.

IAS 39 is to be replaced with a new standard IFRS 9, which removes the restrictions and accounting anomalies contained in IAS 39 improving the reporting standards and transparency. Many of the users of financial statements told the IASB that the requirements in IAS 39 were difficult to understand, apply, and interpret.

IFRS 9 sets out the requirements for recognizing and measuring financial assets, financial liabilities, and some contracts to buy or sell non-financial assets.

This course specifically focuses on the new rules and reporting standards contained in IFRS 9 which is designed for professionals who have experience operating under IAS 39.
