    IASB Consults on Amendments to IFRS 17 on Insurance Contracts

    June 26, 2019

    IASB proposed to amend the insurance contracts standard IFRS 17. The amendments aim to reduce cost of implementing the standard and to make it easier for companies to explain their results when applying the standard. As per the proposal, entities would be required to apply the amended standard for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 01, 2022, as opposed to the earlier date of January 01, 2021. The comment deadline is September 25, 2019 and IASB plans to publish the finalized amendments to IFRS 17 in mid-2020.

    Post stakeholder discussions on the standard that initially issued in May 2017, IASB decided to propose amendments to IFRS 17 to alleviate certain concerns and challenges raised about implementing the standard. The proposed amendments are designed to minimize the risk of disruption to implementation already underway. They do not change the fundamental principles of the standard or reduce the usefulness of information for investors. The exposure draft proposes targeted amendments to IFRS 17 on the following topics:

    • Scope exclusions—credit card contracts and loan contracts that meet the definition of an insurance contract
    • Expected recovery of insurance acquisition cash flows
    • Contractual service margin attributable to investment-return service and investment-related service
    • Reinsurance contracts held—recovery of losses on underlying insurance contracts
    • Presentation in the statement of financial position
    • Applicability of the risk mitigation option
    • Deferral of the effective date of IFRS 17 from 2021 to 2022 
    • Temporary exemption from IFRS 9 on financial instruments
    • Transition modifications and reliefs
    • Minor amendments in paragraphs BC147−BC163

     

    Comment Due Date: September 25, 2019

    Effective Date: January 01, 2022 (Proposed)
