  • A Closer Look — Impact of transition from IAS 39 to IFRS 9 on the exchange of modification of financial liabilities Image
  • A Closer Look — Impact of transition from IAS 39 to IFRS 9 on the exchange of modification of financial liabilities

    published 22 Nov 2017

    The accounting for certain modifications and exchanges of financial liabilities measured at amortised cost (e.g. bank loans and issued bonds) will change on transition from IAS 39 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement to IFRS 9 Financial Instruments. This change arises from a clarification by the IASB in the Basis for Conclusions of the amendments to IFRS 9 Prepayment Features with Negative Compensation issued on 12 October 2017. The IFRS 9 accounting treatment is applicable from 1 January 2018 (the effective date of IFRS 9, or earlier if IFRS 9 is adopted early) and will need to be applied retrospectively to all affected financial liabilities that continue to be recognised on transition from IAS 39. This will result in a transition adjustment and a change to the effective interest rate for the financial liabilities affected.
