The IFRS Foundation has organised six webinars aimed at academics to stimulate research into IFRS 9 Financial Instruments, IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and IFRS 16 Leases.
Research evidence on IFRS 9 Financial Instruments, IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and IFRS 16 Leases will inform the International Accounting Standards Board’s (Board) post-implementation reviews (PIRs) of these Standards. The Board has already started working on the PIR of the classification and measurement requirements in IFRS 9. The Board plans to discuss the start dates of the PIRs of the impairment and hedge accounting requirements in IFRS 9, IFRS 15 and IFRS 16 in the second half of 2021.
Two live webinars will be held about each IFRS Standard, at different times of the day, to accommodate stakeholders in different time zones. Each webinar will consist of an overview of the Standard’s objectives and related research opportunities, followed by questions and answers.
Timings and links for registration can be found below; the slide decks are also available.
