Brings Recommendations to

accounting in 2005
Accounting in 2005
  • Existing standards on Financial Instruments - IAS 32 and IAS 39
  • June 2002 - Proposed Amendments

  • August 2003 - Proposed Amendments: Fair Value Hedge Accounting for a Portfolio Hedge of Interest Rate Risk
the impact on the reporting environment
The impact on the Reporting Environment
  • Over 7,000 European firms affected from 2005.
  • Each country can expand scope of EU regulation.
  • Companies not under the EU Regulation will continue to be subject to Accounting Directives and local accounting standards
  • Even where convergence is an objective, there are still likely to be differences for a while
  • These differences, together with the related impacts on tax and regulatory reporting, could have a significant influence on those many companies that have a choice to make
fair value measurement
Fair Value Measurement
  • any financial instrument can be measured at fair value
  • ‘what is fair value?’
  • The Exposure Draft presented a number of potential issues
  • From our work with the IASB, we are hopeful that many of these issues have been resolved
  • Final wording?
hedge accounting
Hedge Accounting
  • All derivatives on balance sheet at fair value.
  • Doing nothing will create significant earnings volatility.
  • Achieving hedge accounting is a challenge:
    • Strict requirements for hedge designation.
    • Process issues are significant.
    • Resource requirements are large.
    • Ability to achieve portfolio hedge accounting is limited, and still moving.
    • Expect some earnings volatility even so.
  • Economic hedges and hedge accounting are likely to differ.
issuer classification liability equity or both
Issuer Classification Liability, Equity, or Both?
  • Split accounting for compound instruments
    • Liability component is initially measured at fair value with any residual amount assigned to equity
  • A derivative based on an entity’s own equity instruments, depending on its terms for settlement, may be accounted for as:
    • a derivative asset/liability (net amount)
    • a liability for the gross redemption amount
    • equity
  • The model is new and still moving.
  • Still not sure what it means other than change.
  • It will impact all securitisation transactions executed from 1 January 2004
  • …but we won’t see the final model until the year end.
