Thanks in advance!
Regards,
Lina

Cash equivalents are financial instruments that can be easily converted to cash, have high liquidity like stock of quoted companies.

Best Regards.

Lina,
I woul suggest to take a look into IAS 7.6: Short term, highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insgnificant risk of changes in value.

I have some clients asking for studies that show the cost of conversion to IFRS for companies that have been through this.  Does anyone know of resources for this?
 
Thanks
Gord

 
 

and if anyone could link to any material about IFRS Conversion Project Management staff?
 
Thanks.

Hi Gord,
 
I don’t have info about it, but I would strongly recommend to include in the estimation the costs of following up on the quality of the conversion and further system modifications. Sometime those are bigger than the actual initial conversion costs.

Regards,
Marc

 
 

This is a very difficult question to answer because …

1. You mention we still have to use IAS until IFRS is more official, please restate the IAS link
2. Please re-state the IFRS link (is the one you sent for instance re FRS 38 in the other E-Mail)
3. Finally please send a link for the US GAAP/FASB, I want to have my library as opposed to relying on the PDF documents which outline differences between US GAAP, IFRS and local GAAP

Hi,
What disclosures does a company need to give for Interest rate swaps and which standards are applicable for this.
Thanks
Aneel

 

Hi Prethy

 

Actually available for sale is an open category that means that if company did not decide where to classify it can be classified as  available for sale. However for held for trading investments are bought to resell for short term gain rather to earn dividend but available for sale normally includes investment which are not held for short term gain rather which are carried for earning long term capital gain or dividend …

Hi there,
sale?

Assets held for sale include assets (or groups of
assets to be disposed of) whose carrying amount will

I understand you might not have any debt or financial assets, but as trading company
you must have some trade receivables (trade debtors). The credit losses (bad debts) recognition/reconciliation is the something you need to disclosue under IFRS7.
In addition you need to have disclousures about accounting policies dealing with financial instruments.
