The IASB published an IFRS 17 standard named ‘Insurance Contracts’ in May 2017. The effective date has been postponed and adjusted to accommodate the amendments to the standard and the challenges insurance companies faced during the implementation.
As we approach the new effective date of January 2023, insurers are under pressure to conform to the new, principle-based accounting and reporting model. The standard requires insurance liabilities to be measured under the current, updated assumptions and proposes a standardized representation of finance results.
Back in 2014, the FASB decided to not proceed with IFRS17 but rather define a separate standard as an improvement to the existing US-GAAP. This improvement was named LDTI – Targeted Improvements to the Accounting for Long-Duration Contracts.
It is considered to be one of the biggest changes in the US accounting world in the past couple of decades. The most important impact is the deferral of acquisition costs, current measurements of liabilities, and the number of disclosures a company will need to provide.
The effective date for SEC filers, excluding smaller reporting companies, is set to 2023, while other entities have two additional years.
Start with confidence.
In such a challenging industry, no one should go through transformation alone.
