2018 - Upcoming webinars
IFRS 9, now effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018, requires that you be aware of its effect to implement it. You will have an overview of the changes brought in by the new standard. Although IFRS 9 is very detailed oriented, you will know what areas have been affected, how to look for the changes brought in by the new standard, and where to find how you should account for these changes
The new IFRS 9 specifies some changes in many areas including initial measurement of financial instruments, subsequent measurement of financial assets, debt instruments, fair value option, equity instruments, other comprehensive income option, measurement guidance, subsequent measurement of financial liabilities, derecognition of financial assets, derecognition of financial liabilities, derivatives as well as embedded derivatives, reclassification, hedge accounting, impairment, presentation, disclosures, and interaction with IFRS 4.
Because IFRS 9 is now a regulatory requirement, it will be mandatory for the next financial statement you help prepare follow its demands. You may be familiar with the old IFRS 9, but you still need to know and understand the implications of all the changes introduced by the new standard. Auditors will be looking specifically for the correct application of this standard. It will affect some entities in a big way, perhaps altering their balance sheet more than they dared to believe. It will affect many large entities in the financial industry as well as entities that depend on financial instruments. The new IFRS 9 specifies changes in many areas such as how financial assets and liabilities are recognized and de-recognized, and valued as well substantially increasing disclosure requirements. Auditors will need to understand the requirements of the new standard, management will have to base decisions on knowledge of this standard to maximize benefits from using financial instruments. In addition, it introduces specific rules about insurance contracts, which means that the interaction between IFRS 4 and IFRS 9 will have to be considered. Like it or not, we will all have to adopt this standard. It is here to stay.
Areas covered include initial measurement of financial instruments, subsequent measurement of financial assets, debt instruments, fair value option, equity instruments, other comprehensive income option, measurement guidance, subsequent measurement of financial liabilities, derecognition of financial assets, derecognition of financial liabilities, derivatives as well as embedded derivatives, reclassification, hedge accounting, Qualifying criteria for hedge accounting, impairment, presentation, disclosures, and interaction with IFRS 4. Although hedge accounting is optional, there are qualifying criteria in IFRS 9 to be able to apply hedge accounting. IFRS 9 identifies three types of hedging relationships and prescribes special accounting provisions for each. air value hedge: a hedge of the exposure to changes in fair value of a recognised asset or liability or an unrecognised firm commitment, or a component of any such item, that is attributable to a particular risk and could affect profit or loss, cash flow hedge: a hedge of the exposure to variability in cash flows that is attributable to a particular risk associated with all, or a component of, a recognized asset or liability (such as all or some future interest payments on variable-rate debt) or a highly probable forecast transaction, and could affect profit or loss. hedge of a net investment in a foreign operation as defined in IAS 21. When an entity first applies IFRS 9, it may choose to continue to apply the hedge accounting requirements of IAS 39, instead of the requirements in IFRS 9, to all of its hedging relationships.
If you would like to be up-to-date on how to account for IFRS 9, this webinar will provide with what you need to know to confidently apply this standard.

Thanks Mike...Your webinar was very informative. The 2 hours flew by like twenty minutes!
I just wanted to share with you this lovely testimonial I received from Myrna Buttner Stahl, who is the Director of Member Services for CMA Saskatchewan, regarding recent seminars in Regina and Saskatoon.
"Mike Morley's presentations on IFRS to CMA members in Saskatchewan were excellent. He provided a comprehensive overview of the topic and used many examples to illustrate the new standards. Mr. Morley made a point to meet as many of our members as possible before and after the presentations and our members' feedback on the events was very positive."
