Programme Objectives

This programme will provide a comprehensive overview on recently finalised financial instruments standard, IFRS 9 / FRS 109, which will replace IAS 39 (FRS 39). The seminar will focus most heavily on those revisions that will have the greatest practical impact. The changes will be illustrated and examples of how the new standard differs from IAS 39 will be provided. The standard is effective in 2018. The implementation of the changes required by the standard may take an extensive period of time depending on the organisation and the impact on long dated contracts need to be considered in advance.
