IFRS 9 - Classification (EN)


According to IFRS 9, financial instruments are measured at amortised cost (AC), fair value through other comprehensive income (FVOCI) and fair value through profit or loss (FVPL). The decisive factor for this classification is the allocation to the business models Hold (AC), Hold and Sell (FVOCI) or Trade (FVPL). For the categories AC and FVOCI, it must also be determined whether the contractual cash flows represent interest and repayment only ("SPPI"). In addition, numerous options and exceptions must be taken into account. The new classification therefore requires detailed individual contract analyses, definitions of the business models, clarification of questions of interpretation and determination of threshold values, which are to be implemented via suitable processes and IT solutions.
