IFRS 17: Get ready

The new IFRS 17 standard which was published in May 2017 was initially expected to be effective as of January 1st, 2021. The divergent opinions expressed at different stages in the project and the complexity of the principle itself, required a deferral of the date of initial application by one year: 1st January 2022. This new standard will change significantly the accounting of insurance contracts and it is certain to impact every insurer on its financial reporting, processes, tools, systems, data management.

IFRS 17 represents the most significant change to insurance accounting in decades. Under the new standard, the measurement and accounting principles for insurance liabilities are fundamentally changed and will impact future performance indicators. Insurance companies now have less than three years in which to introduce the standard and anticipate the impacts which will affect every aspect of the organisation.
