- Treatment of fees in the IRR calculation
- Balance sheet and P&L calculation of a bond at FVTPL and FVTOCI
- Effective interest rate method for interests (same as amortised costs)
- Unrealised gain based on NPV at current yield of future cash flows
- Reminder on determining fair value
- Level 1 based on unadjusted quoted price
- Level 2 based on quoted price in inactive markets or observable model input
- Level 3 based on unobservable but significant inputs to the overall value
Case Study #1: participants will be presented with a few financial instruments and will classify them in their relevant categories
Case Study #2: participants will compute on Excel the impact on balance and P&L for different types of debt & equity instruments
Session 3 – Financial Assets Impairments

- Three stages process to determine impairments
- Interest income based on gross carrying amount or amortised costs
- Accounting treatment for financial instruments already impaired when acquired
Case Study #3: participants will assess a credit deterioration on a financial instrument and book an impairment based its expected future losses
Session 4 – Financial Liabilities & Own Credit

Case Study #4: participants will assess the impact on credit deterioration on institutions’ own bonds

IFRS 9 Course Summary:
International Financial Reporting Standard 9 (“IFRS 9”) is the accounting standard for financial instruments, which defines the classification, measurements and impairment of financial instruments. It is designed to make annual reports more meaningful to investors as well as simplify how auditors implement the rules and introduce safeguards to limit credit losses.
In July 2014, after several years of delay, the accounting regulators published the final text of IFRS 9. This combines revised versions of previously published sections with the first publication of the final and most controversial impairment section.
IFRS 9 will become effective in 2018 but is already widely reported in annual accounts of financial institutions and corporate worldwide.
Through a mix of lecture and case studies, the workshop will equip participants to achieve a detailed understanding of the latest IFRS 9 standard, both for financial assets, liabilities and derivatives, including:
- The classification and measurement of financial instruments;
- The new impairment methodology based on expected losses;
- The fair value of financial liabilities and deterioration of institutions’ own credit;
- The different types of hedge accounting and the recent IFRS changes.
Participants will be required to bring a laptop to the course with that model loaded.
