  • ifrssm.gif Image

14 Oct 2008

The IASB has issued amendments to IAS 39 'Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement' and IFRS 7 'Financial Instruments: Disclosures' that would permit reclassification of some financial instruments out of the fair-value-through-profit-or-loss category and out of the available-for-sale category.

The amendments introduce into IFRSs the same possibility of reclassifications that is already permitted under US GAAP in rare circumstances. The amendments are effective 1 July 2008.
