IFRS SERIES: Developing IFRS 17 (Insurance Contract)
As the title refers, this course attempts to develop confidence in applying IFRS 17 from the fundamental level. The participants are expected to build themselves into applying IFRS 17 confidently especially in the insurance industries.
IFRS 17 replaces IFRS 4 on accounting for insurance contracts. IFRS 17 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2023. However, each country will differ in terms of the effective date of adopting IFRS 17. For example, IFRS 17 would be effective from 1 January 2024 in Thailand and from 1 January 2025 in Indonesia. The financial services authorities of each country encourage the insurance industry to adopt IFRS 17 as soon as
possible. The features in insurance products are increasingly diverse which entails sound accounting standards. IFRS 17 will make the Financial Statements of insurance companies more comparable with other industries such as banking and other financial services. The most significant thing in IFRS 17 compared to the previous standard IFRS 4 is that the premiums are
not recognized directly as income. There are 3 methods of revenue recognition in the insurance industry, namely the Building Block Approach, Premium Allocation Approach, and Variable Fee Approach.
