A157 : Accounting for Derivative Contracts and Hedging Activities

7.00 CPE Hours (Category 1)
Classroom

Introduction
Accounting for derivatives often poses considerable challenges to practicing accountants.  A derivative contract often has an initial value of zero and subsequently it changes value from positive (asset) to negative (liability) and vice versa.
 
A derivative contract is the basic building block for hedging activities in managing exposure to volatilities in business environments, such as exposure to financial risks that comprise of credit risk, liquidity risk, interest rates risk, foreign exchange fluctuation risks etc. Hedge accounting is an accounting procedure to account for a derivative contract that is designated as a hedging instrument to hedge against a particular risk exposure of an entity.
 
The double entries can sometime be complex depending on the type of risks being hedged and the intention of the hedging activities. There are predominantly three hedge accounting methodologies namely fair value hedge, cash flow hedge and net investment hedge
