The scope of this project is to develop updated accounting requirements for financial instruments that are substantially converged with IFRSs.
Issues the project intends to consider include (but are not necessarily limited to)
o Classification of financial assets
o The move from an incurred loss impairment model to an expected loss model
o Hedge accounting requirements
o Additional application guidance for public sector specific securitizations (where future resources from, for example, sovereign rights, taxation rights or other rights not recognized in the statement of financial position are securitized)
