Mazars latest IFRS Insight addresses the accounting for financial instruments under IFRS. It draws on several relevant IFRS standards to tackle, in one handbook, the entire range of challenges related to financial instruments among which: recognition and derecognition, classification and measurement, impairment for credit risk, derivatives and hedging, and related disclosures. It includes all the new requirements introduced by IFRS 9 and the related amendments to other standards such as IFRS 7.
The Mazars Insight series on IFRS aim at helping preparers, users and auditors of financial statements develop their theoretical and practical understanding of IFRSs. Our objective is to provide our readers, whether beginners or experts, with useful tools which provide clarity and insight on the challenging issues that may be encountered when applying IFRSs. Concepts are explained in a pedagogical way and illustrated by numerous practical examples.
