IFRS 17

Following nearly twenty years of discussion, the International Financial Reporting Standard 17 (IFRS 17) launches in January 2022. Designed to achieve the goal of a consistent, principle-based accounting for insurance contracts, the new global Standard requires insurance liabilities to be measured at a current fulfillment value and provides a more uniform measurement and presentation approach for all insurance contracts. Under IFRS 17, companies will measure their contracts based on the obligations that the contracts create and reflect the time value of money in estimated payments to settle claims.

International Financial Reporting Standard 17 (IFRS 17)

IFRS Standards are set by the IFRS Foundation’s standard-setting body, the International Accounting Standards Board. Their mission is to develop IFRS Standards that bring transparency, accountability and efficiency to financial markets around the world.

IFRS 17 will revolutionize the insurance industry and require the deployment of sizable resources if insurers are to remain compliant, especially as the Standard will have broad application to various contracts. Significant planning is therefore needed to transform optimally. Given the changes to the way data will be presented, it is critical to ensure that the right data is delivered in the right way, as well as modeling the future state while also demonstrating appropriate controls and processes to regulators.

Regulatory reporting of data attributes

IFRS 17 is the biggest change to insurance accounting compliance this century. It requires a substantial transformation in the business process and data flows to meet the new accounting standards. To succeed, firms will need total governance of their data, knowing and being able to prove all provenance, lineage and quality while ensuring appropriate security and controls.
