In this issue, we focus on NZ IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement. This year we have seen the first tranche of preparers grapple with the practical interpretation of the new standard.

Fair Value Insights takes a closer look at three core concepts that we are encountering repeatedly in our discussions with clients – Unit of Account, Highest & Best Use and Credit Valuation Adjustments – and the challenges they present. More importantly, it offers some practical solutions for implementation.

Learn about:

  • How Unit of Account is critical to fair value measurement but may not align with commercial considerations
  • A potential increase in impairment risk as a result of the impact of pending IASB Guidance
  • How Highest & Best Use is viewed from a market participant standpoint
  • Credit/Debit Valuation Adjustments – how reporting entities are now required to explicitly consider the impact of both their own credit risk and counterparty credit risk when assessing the fair value of derivative financial assets and liabilities.
