How to apply hedge accounting

To protect your business against fluctuations in exchange rates, interest rates or prices you apply hedging methods.

However, the accounting treatment of the hedging transaction may not reflect in the Financial Statements the benefits you will have obtained. How do you ensure the Financial Statements accurately reflect what went on?

Under certain conditions, hedge accounting can be applied thanks to IFRS 9. In this webinar, we walk you through real-life examples of this to see the practicalities of hedge accounting.

You should attend this webinar if: 

  • Your company uses derivatives and is considering hedge accounting implementation;
  • Your company is considering the application of derivatives to manage its financial risk;
  • You want to know how financial risk management practices are reflected in your company’s financial statements;
  • You want to know more about the links between financial risk management practices and financial reporting.

What you will learn during this webinar:

  • Understand what hedge accounting is;
  • Consider the pros and cons of applying hedge accounting based on IFRS principles;
  • Learn what formal requirements must be met to apply hedge accounting;
  • See examples of typical hedge accounting applications concerning currency and interest rate risk.

Most importantly, you will be able to get answers to your questions from a practising IFRS and financial risk management expert trainer.
