Discussion by Case Analysis Method
Dr. T. P. Ghosh

Classification and fair value measurement of financial assets is a critical issue in accounting. In India, long term investments are carried at cost unless there is permanent diminution in value of such investments. IFRSs require classification of financial assets into two categories : financial assets at fair value and financial assets at amortised cost. Financial assets at fair value in subsequent measurement is further classified into financial assets at fair value through profit and loss and fair value through other comprehensive income. Financial liabilities are also measured either at fair value or amortised cost. Implementation of AS 30 , AS 31 and AS 32 issued by the ICAI based on the IFRS principles is delayed .

But fair value accounting of financial assets and financial liabilities including fair valuation of non-traded derivatives, split accounting for compound financial instruments , principles of Level 1 , Level 2 and Level 3 valuation, impairment analysis of financial assets measured at cost or amortised cost , hedge accounting , reclassification of financial assets and risk disclosures are major accounting issues which India should adopt at the earliest. A thorough understanding of the financial instrument accounting is strong step towards interacting with the emerging accounting scenario.

This Accounting for Financial Instruments training / workshop intends to carry out in-depth discussion and analysis of case problems on the fair value measurement technique of domestic currency as well as foreign currency denominated financial assets and liabilities and derivative financial instruments like swaps and currency forwards.
