IFRS 9 with SAP FPSL

Prepare your financial and risk management for the future.

The international accounting standard IFRS 9 is the successor to IAS 39 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement. It has been effective since January 1, 2018 and essentially covers the following topics:
  • Recognition & Measurement (Amortised Cost vs. Fair Value, -TPL, -OCI, …)
  • Impairment Derecognition
  • General Hedge Accounting

Depending on the business model and the type of contractual cash flow, different valuation and accounting approaches arise. To determine these, the International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) prescribes various test procedures and logics.

Financial reporting for financial services is constantly changing and brings with it increasingly complex requirements for business processes and IT infrastructures. To meet these challenges and additionally generate added value through real-time information from a highly efficient, granular database, companies need a viable and powerful IT solution.

With granular data management to new potential

SAP FPSL is based on many years of experience in the financial industry and offers an ideal solution to meet the requirements, some of which are new and some of which have existed for some time. In particular, the combination of efficient, homogeneous and granular data storage and new analytics options holds great potential. This combination enables companies to act in a more optimized and effective manner, linking financial accounting, cost accounting, and the valuation of financial products.

SAP FPSL makes use of baseline-delta logic: it enables postings in different accounting standards (multi-GAAP) to be generated on the basis of a narrow, "generally valid" database. In doing so, the system uses functional-logical accounting processes that build on each other on a period-by-period basis. In addition, SAP FPSL follows a proven multi-currency approach, which creates the prerequisite for foreign currency valuations in a variety of different currencies.
