The journey of insurance companies from IFRS 4 to IFRS 17 - September 2019

The road to transition from IFRS 4 “Insurance Contracts” to IFRS 17 “Insurance Contracts” has been and is still a journey of fruitful debates engaging various stakeholders which continue to yield valuable insights sourcing from all key players in the industry. The IASB has recognized that the myriad of concerns raised by stakeholders, pose serious challenges to a smooth transition to IFRS 17. Accordingly, a series of amendments have been proposed to the existing IFRS 17 standard included in the exposure draft published by IASB recently in June 2019.

CFO Survey - the new IFRS

Results Overview

Early summer of 2017 you may have received a request to participate at a survey on the new IFRS, namely IFRS 15 (Revenue from Contracts with Customers) and IFRS 16 (Leases). The survey was focused on how well the Luxembourgish companies are prepared for the implementation of these new standards.

Because issuers discussed and lobbied for a long time against the new standards issued by the IASB issued, it may be derived that the consequences of these standards would be material to many companies.

IFRS newsletter - March 2017

Under its publication around enforcement priorities for 2016 financial statements, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) emphasizes that the areas of focus will constitute:

  • Presentation of financial performance
  • Financial instruments: distinction between equity instruments and financial liabilities
  • Disclosures of the impact of the new standards on IFRS financial statements

These matters are described in detail under European common enforcement priorities for 2016 financial statements.

ESMA has also issued extracts from its enforcement database. We found that certain of these case studies would make an interesting read for IFRS users and have therefore summarized them under Extract from the EECS’s Database of Enforcement.

We share with you an attention item over an IFRS 13 (Fair value measurement) topic: highest and best use.

We will then close with a short report over IFRIC proposed changes relating to the taxation: Uncertainty over Income Tax Treatments and a summary of the projects of the IASB.
