Bloomsbury A Practical Guide Financial Instruments By CA Santosh Maller


Accounting for financial instruments under Ind AS is generally complex. In India, we do not have much of a history of a comprehensive and robust accounting framework for financial instruments. Historically, accounting for financial instruments is primarily based on form rather than the contractual terms of instruments.

Focus on accounting for financial instruments started only since 2007. Owing to the global financial crisis which raised issues regarding accounting treatment of financial instruments, various accounting standards setting bodies examined the robustness of accounting for financial instruments. Further, Ind AS transition resulted in high-quality, principles-based, globally comparable financial reporting of large Indian companies. Accounting for financial instruments under Ind AS is quite robust and comprehensive.

This book attempts to provide insights and in-depth analysis on interpretative issues and complex principles in the Ind ASs dealing with financial instruments. The requirements of Ind AS 32, Financial instruments: Presentation, Ind AS 109, Financial instruments, and Ind AS 107 Financial instruments: Disclosures are extensively dealt with. There are separate chapters addressing:

  • Scope of the requirements.
  • Debt/equity classification.
  • Recognition and Derecognition.
  • Subsequent measurement.
  • Fair values and impairment.
  • Hedge accounting.
  • Presentation and Disclosures.
  • Implications on key provisions of Companies Act, 2013.
  • ICAI’s Guidance Note on Accounting for Derivative Contracts.
  • insurance Contracts

This book is intended to help the companies to identify Ind AS requirements that are relevant to them and evaluate various aspects of financial instruments accounting. The book would be an immensely useful referencer for professionals, practitioners and corporates.
