Tackling challenges brought by new HKFRS standards and revised tax law

In this seminar, our speakers will help you prepare your financial statements with new HKFRS standards, and address the impacts brought by revised tax structure.  

14:00 Tuesday 29 May

How to transit to HKFRS 9 Financial Instruments? How to measure expected credit losses and assess the fair values of unquoted equity instruments?

HKFRS 9 / IFRS 9 Financial Instruments is already mandatorily effective (effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018).  It replaces HKAS 39 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement. For listed entities with December year end, they are required to adopt this new accounting standard in their interim accounts for the six months ending 30 June 2018.  

HKFRS 9 is significantly different from HKAS 39 on a number of aspects. In particular, HKFRS 9 has introduced dramatically different requirements regarding (a) classification and measurement of financial assets and (b) impairment on financial assets. With the new classification and measurement requirements, the accounting treatments of entities’ financial assets may be very different from those adopted under HKAS 39. Also, with the new impairment model introduced by HKFRS 9 (i.e. the expected loss model), additional impairment losses may have to be recognised much earlier.

Furthermore, the transitional requirements from HKAS 39 to HKFRS 9 are complex.

In this seminar, our speakers will share with you practical issues on how to transit from HKAS 39 to HKFRS 9. They will also share with you approaches to assess impairment losses under the expected loss model and the fair values of unquoted equity instruments within the scope of HKFRS 9.

Update on HKFRS 15 and governance & regulatory changes (2017)

Moore Stephens would like to invite you to the forthcoming seminar.
 
HKFRS 15 Revenue with Contracts with Customers will be effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018. The new requirements will result in changes to the way companies recognise revenue. Companies should assess the extent of the impact to address the business implications, including changes to the profile of margins on contracts, system and processes, and compliance with debt covenants.
 
In the last number of years, there were many developments in the area of governance and regulatory requirements for companies listed in Hong Kong, the HKEx amended the listing rules to include disclosure requirements with reference to the new Companies Ordinance. There are also new provisions related to risk management and internal controls; reporting on environmental, social and governance; new requirements related to inside information and connected transactions.
 
Our speakers will provide you an in-depth guide on HKFRS 15, and a quick update to the recent development in the area of governance and regulatory changes and will discuss a number of non-compliance cases, in particular related to inside information and connected transactions to share with you the issues, how the regulators are addressing them and some of the consequences.

IFRS 9 Financial Instruments & IFRS 16 Leases (2016)

Moore Stephens would like to invite you to the forthcoming technical seminar. This seminar will address how IFRS 9 Financial Instruments and IFRS 16 Leases affect your financial reporting. Our speaker David Holland, National Head of Technical Accounting from Moore Stephens Australia will discuss with audience the below:

  • IFRS 9 introduces new requirements for classification and measurement, impairment and hedge accounting. 
  • IFRS 16 - In future, all leases will be treated in the same manner. The new treatment is broadly similar to that of a current finance lease - companies will recognise an asset, being their right to use the underlying asset, and a liability representing the present value of their obligation to pay for that asset.

18:00 Thursday 23 June
