In the previous post we focused on describing and defining various financial instruments under Polish and international balance sheet accounts regulations, as well as the correct classification of debentures. In this article we will take a closer look at the initial recognition of these instruments and their classification in compliance with IFRS 9 guidance.

Contrary to what it may seem and what people usually think, there are different ways of financing transactions. Most entrepreneurs I work with say that cash is the source of funding. Sellers tend to assume that the buyer opts for this form of funding the deal. And indeed, it is the most popular method of payment in a transaction between the parties involved; however, it is good to know that cash is not the only option the buyer has in a transaction.

In one of our latest articles we have presented several of the most popular financial instruments, both simple and more complex. As auditors, we quite often see doubts concerning their disclosures and measurement, and it is not just about the most popular ones like e.g. futures, finance lease or loan agreements, but also about those less common in business practice, like e.g. debt securities convertible into common shares, bonds and call options for shares of another entity.

As we announced towards the end of 2019, after discussing a couple of topics on fixed assets and provisions, we will now start a series of articles on financial instruments. Adopting a practical point of view, we would like to explain how to identify financial instruments, and then measure them and present them properly. To this end, we will need the provisions of the Accounting Act (hereinafter: AA) or the Regulation on Detailed Rules of Recognition, Valuation Methods, Scope of Disclosure and Presentation of Financial Instruments (Journal of Laws, item 277) (hereinafter: RMFIF), but also, or rather most of all, International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), primarily including IFRS 9, but also IFRS 7, IAS 32 and IAS 39.

If you fail to follow the new regulations or fail to comply with the new obligations, you may face severe penalties, and these should be avoided by preparing well in advance.

The consequences of applying the prudence principle and the matching principle involve recognising provisions and disclosing contingent liabilities. In practice, these areas stir a lot of controversy because of the danger of being subjective, so typical for any decision-making under uncertainty.

In line with IAS 37, provisions are liabilities and must have all the characteristics of liabilities as being a balance sheet item.

As we have already mentioned in the previous article, any foreigner applying for a visa in order to perform work may submit a written statement on entrusting work registered by the labour office instead of a work permit.

An audit of public interest entities (PIE) is regarded as a high-risk audit not without reason. The higher requirements – which must be met by the audited companies, as well as their auditors – mainly arise from the fact that information in financial statements and in reports of an expert auditor may directly translate into share prices and, for smaller investors, is often the only source of data about a listed company.

There has been a lot of talk about changes in transfer pricing regulations over the last 3 years.
