The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) recently issued a new standard on Financial Instruments – IFRS 9, which will have a significant impact on entities dealing with financial instruments and exposed to market risk. Phase III of the IASB’s financial instruments project is still in progress and addresses the complex area of hedge accounting.

This comprehensive two-day course provides an in-depth review of the current IFRS accounting and reporting requirements for derivatives and hedging. Course delegates also receive up-to-date information on IFRS 9 and Phase III of the IASB’s project to replace IAS 39, as well as a brief comparison to US GAAP where applicable.

The requirements for derivatives and hedging are explained in clear, simple language and illustrated with corporate annual reports and other real-world examples. Valuations, hedge documentation processes, effectiveness testing, and journal entry outcomes are explained and illustrated by the expert instructor. Delegates are also invited to bring along their own examples to discuss during the course.
