Significant Variation Among Banks in HKFRS 9 Reporting - Study - Regulation Asia

Mazars Hong Kong's Hong Kong Banks’ HKFRS 9 Benchmark Study has been mentioned in an article in Regulation Asia published on 26th November 2019.

Close to two years after IFRS 9 was adopted into Hong Kong accounting standards (HKFRS 9), there are significant variations in reporting practices among banks locally incorporated in Hong Kong, according to a new study from Mazars.

The HKFRS 9 standard on financial instruments has been applicable in Hong Kong since 1 January 2018, fundamentally changing the way financial instruments are classified and impairment losses are recognised. It also introduced significant changes to financial disclosures.

The new HKFRS 9 Benchmark Study from Mazars highlights impacts and trends that arose from the application of HKFRS 9. It found that 6 of the 22 banks reported a higher net asset value after HKFRS 9 implementation.
