IFRS 17 Validation

Designed to provide assurance on the reliability and methodological compliance of your IFRS 17 landscape

IFRS 17 will be effective from 1 January 2023 and it will change the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of insurance contracts. It directly impacts how insurers value their insurance liabilities and recognise profits. 

Insurers must define methodologies for non-prescribed items such as discount rate, risk adjustment, contract boundaries. New systems must be developed to handle data, perform calculations and generate accounting ledger entries.
