New Categories of Financial Assets under the new AASB 9


AASB 9 makes revisions to the boundary between amortised cost and fair value measurement which will change the profile of balance sheets and whether changes in fair value are recognised in profit or loss or other comprehensive income.

This webinar will provide a high level overview of the new requirements of AASB 9 in relation to the categories of financial assets, and by using case studies and detailed worked examples, we will demonstrate:
• The complexity of classification and measurement of financial assets
• Restrictions on types of financial assets that can be recorded at amortised cost
• Impacts of the new requirements to record more assets at fair value
• Removal of the cost exemption for investments in shares

Webinar Learning Outcomes:
• Explain the categories of financial assets and liabilities, and
• Explain the journal entries to process the recognition and measurement of financial assets and liabilities.

Suited to:
• All organisations who have financial instruments, i.e. receivables, payables, investments in shares, cash and cash equivalents, investments in government or corporate bonds
• Consultants and tax practitioners that provide advice on asset procurement and leasing strategies, and
• Preparers and auditors of financial reports.
