THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)
Date: 19th to 20th March 2018
Venue: Hilton Hotel, Nairobi
Theme: Towards IFRS 9 Compliant 2018 Q1 reports
The recent developments in the financial reporting environment call for close attention to the key areas of change in the standard setting arena. One major change which has been causing significant worry in markets across the globe is the new International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) number 9. The Kenyan market has not escaped the impact of the new standard either.
IFRS 9 replaces International Accounting Standard (IAS) 39. This is in respect to the methodology used in providing for uncertainties in economic benefits of financial assets, loans or debts issued by financial institutions (impairment provisions on financial instruments). The new standard is effective from 1 January 2018 and affects any financial statements prepared after the date. The implementation of the new standard takes immediate effect and all affected entities will be expected to prepare compliant financial reports going forward.
The new impairment requirements in IFRS 9 are based on an Expected Credit Loss (ECL) model and replaces the IAS 39 Incurred Loss (IL) model. ECL model applies to debt instruments (such as bank deposits, loans, debt securities and trade receivables) recorded at discounted cost or at market value and recorded in the income statement through other comprehensive income, including lease receivables, contract assets, loan commitments and financial guarantee contracts that are not measured at market value through profit or loss. As a result, entities will have to recognize not only incurred credit losses but also losses that are expected to be incurred in future.
As way of responding to the existing complexity of the financial reporting arrangements which have been occasioned by the introduction of the new standard, the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya has organized a sensitization workshop to prepare members on the new developments expected during the implementation of IFRS 9. This is a practical based approach which will provide guidance on preparation of Quarter 1 of 2018 financial reports.
