Final version of IFRS 9 Financial Instruments
In July 2014, the IASB (International Accounting Standards Board) published the fourth and final version of IFRS 9 Financial Instruments that replaces IAS 39.
This is the conclusion of a major project started in 2002 as part of the Norwalk Agreement between the IASB and US Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) to reform financial instruments accounting.
A document is now available for SAP® Financial Consolidation starter kit for IFRS users to help them consider the transition to IFRS 9. This document firstly presents a brief overview of IFRS 9. It then focuses on the main changes non-financial corporates will have to face when adopting IFRS 9. The last part is dedicated to the expected impacts on the SAP Financial Consolidation starter kit for IFRS.
