On September 13, 2021, the Accounting Standards Board (AcSB) released the exposure draft "Financial Instruments". The proposal provides an optional expedient for applying modification accounting and an exception to certain hedge accounting requirements in Section 3856, "Financial Instruments". Applying to both private enterprises and NFPOs using Parts II and III of the CPA Canada Handbook – Accounting, these amendments aim to ease financial reporting burdens related to market-wide interest rate benchmark reform. Comments are requested by October 17, 2021.
