Discuss The Shortcomings Of IAS 39 (AASB 139) And Reasons That Led To Rise Of IFRS 9 (AASB 9)

Question

The IASB is in the process of undertaking a comprehensive review of accounting for financial instruments, and has issued a new financial instruments standard referred to as IFRS 9 Financial Instruments. IFRS 9 (AASB 9) was issued to replace IAS 39 (AASB 139) Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement. IFRS 9 (AASB 9) is applicable to annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013, although early adoption is permitted.

Required:

How will the application of IFRS 9 (AASB 9) impact on the accounting for financial instruments in financial reports? Your discussion should be illustrated and informed by reference to two listed companies (ASX or other sources for the most recent years), that are either using IAS 39 (AASB 139) or that have decided to early adopt IFRS 9 (AASB 9). Your discussion should also consider the views of a range of researchers and accounting users, and be appropriately referenced from authoritative sources.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
