27 Mar 2020

The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has published a document responding to questions regarding the application of IFRS 9 'Financial Instruments' during the period of enhanced economic uncertainty arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The document is intended to support the consistent application of requirements in IFRSs. Therefore, it highlights requirements within IFRS 9 Financial Instruments that are relevant for companies considering how the pandemic affects their accounting for expected credit losses; it does not change, remove nor add to, the requirements of IFRS 9.
