IFRIC 9 - Reassessment of Embedded Derivatives
- Published in the Official Journal
- Rasmus Sommer
The Interpretation clarifies that an entity shall assess whether an embedded derivative is required to be separated from the host contract and accounted for as a derivative when the entity first becomes a party to the contract. Subsequent reassessment is prohibited unless there is a change in the terms of the contract that significantly modifies the cash flows that otherwise would be required under the contract, in which case reassessment is required.
