IASB Exposure Draft ED/2021/8 Initial Application of IFRS 17 and IFRS 9—Comparative Information (Proposed amendment to IFRS 17)

The International Accounting Standards Board (Board) has proposed a narrow-scope amendment to the transition requirements in Appendix C of IFRS 17 for entities that first apply IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts and IFRS 9 Financial Instruments at the same time.

The proposed amendment relates to financial assets for which comparative information presented on initial application of IFRS 17 and IFRS 9 has not been restated for IFRS 9. Applying the proposed amendment, a company would be permitted to present comparative information about such a financial asset as if the classification and measurement requirements of IFRS 9 had been applied to that financial asset. The Exposure Draft proposes no change to the transition requirements in IFRS 9.
