Practical Application of MFRS 9, 15 & 16 and Their Interactions

Expert Speaker Danny Tan Boon Wooi

MYR1,802.00 (No SST)



Designed specifically for accountants and finance leaders, this two-day programme provides an insight into the salient technical features of the three new Standards – MFRS 9 Financial Instruments, MFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers and MFRS 16 Leases.

The programme uses practical case studies to illustrate how the three Standards are interrelated to each other. Depending on the contractual terms, all the three new Standards could be applied in a single contract. You will gain a working knowledge on how to apply these three Standards in practice and understand the impact on financial position (effect gearing ratios), financial performance (timing and amount of income and expense) and cash flows.
