This training activity is designed to teach participants the main provisions of the new Part 1 – International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) 9, Financial Instruments, and provide with the necessary knowledge of the standard to apply it to their own financial instrument fact situation.
This training activity will assist participants by providing them with the practical knowledge to understand the concepts and provisions to the standard and apply it to their portfolio of financial instruments. This standard applies to all companies and may require certain planning, system and process changes to apply it effectively. This standard can significantly change financial instrument classification, measurement and impairment amounts and their timing of recognition. This training activity will likely be particularly relevant to certain industries as well (e.g. banking and other financial service industries). The course will cover real-world examples and case studies.
