IAS 39 Amendments - Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement: The Fair Value Option
- Published in the Official Journal
- Didier Andries
The amendments provide entities with an option when certain conditions are met to designate irrevocably on initial recognition a financial instrument as measured at fair value with gains and losses recognised in profit or loss. The objective of these amendments is to allow entities to provide more relevant information about their financial instruments while not allowing them to use the option inappropriately.
