Preparing the Market for IFRS 17.
The proposed amendments to IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts have been published.
The key proposals are a one-year deferral of the effective date of IFRS 17 to 2022 and changes to the standard's requirements in seven important areas.
Even with the extra year, many insurers will need to step up the pace of their implementation efforts to reach the finish line in good shape. You will need to develop a clear picture of how the proposals will impact your specific business and IFRS 17 action plans.
