xmp.id:E543DDFA32C2E61189BA9019471AB07B IFRS 9 responds to criticisms that IAS 39 is too complex, inconsistent with the way entities manage their businesses and risks, and defers the recognition of credit losses on loans and receivables until too late in the credit cycle. Investors would likely find alternatives from market pricing unacceptable especially when equities are quoted on active markets. 225 0 obj As a result of this as­sess­ment, to remain con­sis­tent with the latest thinking of the Board (following the deletion of paragraph 66 of IAS 39 with the issuance of IFRS 9), the staff rec­om­mended that an entity should apply IAS 36 in testing in­vest­ments accounted for at cost for im­pair­ment. Consistent with this view, the OCI election for equities does not include recycling. IFRS 9 requires particular (simple) debt investments to be measured at fair value with value changes recognised in OCI. Our analysis of a sample of 120 European companies shows us that significant holdings of equity investments classified as AFS applying IAS 39 are limited to a relatively small group of companies, primarily in the insurance and utilities industry.

because the current impairment test in IFRS 9 applies to the collectability of contractual payments so is relevant for debt investments. Accordingly, IFRS 9 requires a company to measure simple debt investments at amortised cost when it holds those investments in order to collect their contractual cash flows.

EFRAG to investigate the potential effects of the requirements in IFRS 9 for equity investments. In addition, while accounting is a consideration in making investment decisions, companies make those decisions on the basis of a variety of economic or other business considerations. In our view, clearly visible information about changes in the value of an equity investment is always important, even if the investment is not going to be sold in the near term. IFRS 9 was the main response of the International Accounting Standards Board to the global financial crisis, and it introduces many enhancements to financial instruments accounting. endobj
