Introduction
 
Participants are required to bring along a calculator 
 
The effect of changes in foreign exchange rate can significantly affect the valuation of assets and liabilities at the initial recognition because the Standard required measurement of foreign assets and liabilities at spot rate at date of transaction. Subsequent to initial recognition of an asset and a liability depending on whether these are monetary or non-monetary items an entity may be required to re-measure the amounts using closing exchange rate at end of reporting period, thus creating volatility in the financial performance and financial position from one period to another. In situation where an entity has foreign operations such as a subsidiary, further complication arises in the measurement of goodwill, fair value adjustment and allocation of foreign exchange difference between the entity and non-controlling interest. Last but not least, the complexity of accounting can be compounded by the used of foreign currency derivatives to hedge against the foreign currency risk where hedge accounting is applied.
