IFRS 17, Insurance Contracts: An illustration

IFRS 17

Financial statements presentation and disclosures

All insurance companies reporting under IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standard) will be impacted by the new reporting standard when it becomes effective in January 2022. IFRS 17 will result in significant changes to the way that financial information is presented, and adoption will require significant planning.

IFRS 17 presents opportunities to harness data more effectively, to improve the structure of your finance function and to better inform your decision making. Ultimately IFRS 17 is about what story you want to tell about your company… and if you really grab the opportunities that implementing the standard presents, imagine the sort of business you could be running in 2021.

This publication (the Illustration) demonstrates the presentation and disclosure requirements of IFRS 17, Insurance Contracts (IFRS 17), as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) in May 2017, as well as the new disclosures introduced or modified by IFRS 9, Financial Instruments (IFRS 9), through consequential amendments to IFRS 7, Financial Instruments: Disclosures (IFRS 7).
