On October 3, 2017, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) staff made available a webcast which provides a high-level discussion on key disclosure requirements in IFRS 9 and the importance of high-quality disclosure information.

The requirements in IFRS 9, Financial Instruments are different from those in IAS 39 in many aspects, and for some, it will result in a significant change in the information provided in the financial statements. High quality disclosures are important for investors and others to understand what has changed in the transition from IAS 39 to IFRS 9, and to understand the basis for the new amounts reported in the financial statements.

Review the press release and webcast on the IASB’s website.
