Introduction

In this Exposure Draft, the International Accounting Standards Board (Board) proposes targeted amendments to IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts, issued in May 2017 to respond to concerns and challenges raised by stakeholders as IFRS 17 is being implemented.

IFRS 17 is needed to address many inadequacies in the wide range of insurance accounting practices used applying IFRS 4 Insurance Contracts and significant implementation activities are already underway. The Board has considered the concerns and challenges raised by stakeholders and concluded that the potential costs of proposing targeted amendments to IFRS 17 could be justified if those amendments would provide meaningful support to entities implementing the Standard and if those amendments:

  • would not change the fundamental principles of the Standard because that would result in a significant loss of useful information for users of financial statements relative to that which would otherwise result from applying IFRS 17; and
  • would avoid unduly disrupting implementation already under way or risking undue delays in the effective date of IFRS 17.
