Question: Is IFRS 9 better than IAS 39?

Overall, the IFRS 9 financial asset classification requirements are considered more principle based than under IAS 39. under IFRS 9 is required only when an entity changes its business model for managing financial assets and is prohibited for financial liabilities; hence, reclassifications are expected to be vary rare.

Which of the following is not covered by IAS 36 impairment?

The exceptions include inventories, deferred tax assets, assets arising from employee benefits, financial assets within the scope of IFRS 9, investment property measured at fair value, biological assets within the scope of IAS 41, some assets arising from insurance contracts, and non-current assets held for sale.

Is IAS 36 Impairment of Assets?

The core principle in IAS 36 is that an asset must not be carried in the financial statements at more than the highest amount to be recovered through its use or sale. If the carrying amount exceeds the recoverable amount, the asset is described as impaired.

Why is IAS 36 important?

IAS 36 Impairment of Assets seeks to ensure that an entitys assets are not carried at more than their recoverable amount (i.e. the higher of fair value less costs of disposal and value in use).

When should I apply IAS 36 Impairment of Assets?

An impairment test is required for all assets within the scope of IAS 36 when there is an indication of impairment at the reporting date. In addition IAS 36 requires certain assets to be tested for impairment annually, irrespective of whether there is any indication of impairment.

What is an impairment loss under IAS 36?

(See IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement.) An impairment loss is the amount by which the carrying amount of an asset or a cash-generating unit exceeds its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount of an asset or a cash-generating unit is the higher of its fair value less costs of disposal and its value in use.
