Ind AS 107, Financial Instruments: Disclosures (All you need to know)

Ind AS 107

Ind AS 107, Financial Instruments: Disclosures The objective of the Ind AS 107 is to require entities to provide disclosures in their financial statements that enable users to evaluate:

  • the significance of financial instruments for the entity’s financial position and performance; and
  • the nature and extent of risks arising from financial instruments to  which the entity is exposed during the period and at the end of the  reporting period, and how the entity manages those

Ind AS 107

The qualitative disclosures describe management’s objectives, policies and processes for managing those risks. The quantitative disclosures provide information about the extent to which the entity is exposed to ri sk, based on information provided internally to the entity’s key management personnel. Together, these disclosures provide an overview of the entity’s use of financial instruments and the exposures to risks they create

The Ind AS applies to all entities, including entities that have few financial instruments (e.g., a manufacturer whose only financial instruments are accounts receivable and accounts payable) and those that  have  many financial instruments (e.g., a financial institution most of whose assets and liabilities are financial instruments).

When this Ind AS requires disclosures by class of financial instrument, an  entity shall group  financial instruments into  classes that are appropriate  to  the nature of the information disclosed and that take into account the characteristics of those financial instruments. An entity shall provide sufficient information to permit reconciliation to  the line items presented in the statement of financial position.

The principles in this Ind AS complement the principles for recognising, measuring and presenting financial assets and financial liabilities in Ind AS 32, Financial Instruments: Presentation and Ind AS 109, Financial Instruments.
