Course Description

Accounting practices for insurance contracts have been diverse. They have often differed from practices in other sectors.  Because many entities will adopt IFRS, or have already done so, the International Accounting Standards Board has issued this International Financial Reporting Standard dealing with Insurance Contracts.

The purpose of this standard is to provide limited improvements to accounting for insurance contracts until the Board completes the second phase of its project on insurance contracts for January 1, 2023. In addition, this IFRS requires any entity issuing insurance contracts (an insurer) to disclose information about those contracts.

  • What is a lease and what is excluded?
  • Definition of lease-specific terms.
  • Classification tests for lessees and for lessors.
