Understanding and implementing AASB 9 can be a complex task. Developing a deep understanding in isolation, without formal training or participation in learning forums with like-minded Treasury accounting professionals, can be very challenging. For this reason, Deloitte has developed a comprehensive 2-day AASB 9 Financial Instruments Workshop covering all aspects of the standard from Classification & Measurement including Impairment through to Hedge Accounting.
9.30am Event commences
4.30pm Event concludes
Lunch & refreshments included
This workshop explores the following areas:
- Classification and Measurement
- Hedge Accounting – Fundamentals
- Hedge Accounting – Advanced
- Time Value
- Foreign Currency Basis Spread
- Aggregated Exposures
- Net Positions
- Hedge Effectiveness – implications of AASB 13 Fair Value Measurement, in particular consideration of credit risk adjustments
The Workshop will limit the number of participants to maximise the learning benefits by fostering interaction and discussion. In addition, the session will include Case Studies to enhance the understanding process.
Participants will leave the Workshop with an extensive knowledge of the standard. Whilst not every element of the standard is necessarily analysed in detail, participants will develop deep knowledge of the scope and the main considerations that need to be worked through in developing accounting outcomes across classification and measurement, impairment and hedge accounting. Based on our experience, the necessary detail for the more common yet complex aspects are included and supported by case studies and examples.
Experiential learning undertaken in the workplace can take significant time. If conducted in isolation of professionals specialising in the area who are exposed to daily testing of accounting considerations in various real-life scenarios, there is an increased risk that accounting outcomes may not occur as expected, or that options to simply and improve financial reporting remain unrecognised. Interpretation and knowledge of commonly applied or accepted approaches brought to the workshop by AASB 9 specialists mitigates this risk and brings to participants a broad range of applied experiences.
We expect that such a training course will provide the tools for:
- Accountants to approach classification of financial instruments and designation of hedge relationships with confidence, including an understanding of the expected accounting treatment
- Accountants and Back Office staff to analyse and apply the complex impairment and hedge accounting provisions of the accounting standards in their everyday workflow
Treasury and Front office staff to gain awareness and appreciation of the hedge accounting implications of transactions dealt (increased ownership) and wider Financial Reporting requirements including measurement bases.
