IFRS 17 for Insurers


IFRS 17 is the newest IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standard) standard for insurance contracts and replaces IFRS 4 on accounting for insurance contracts on January 1st, 2023.

All insurance companies reporting under IFRS will be impacted by the new reporting standard when it becomes effective in January 2023.

IFRS 17 will result in significant changes to the way that financial information is presented, and adoption will require significant planning.

IFRS 17 presents opportunities to harness data more effectively, improve the structure of your finance function and help you in your decision making.
