Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities for Energy Companies
United Arab Emirates
Dec 16 - 18 Dec, 2012
Accounting for Derivatives and Hedges for the Energy Industry even in the best of times is complex due to the interpreting IFRS 39: Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement as well as the infrastructure to document, test and tract hedging relationships with counterparties. However, the landscape has been changing due to regulations, liquidity in the market, discovery of new sources of energy, and price uncertainty in the forward markets, as well as foreign currency volatility concerns. This 2-day course will address those critical issues and is tailored for controllers, accounting and audit managers, and front-mid-back office personnel in energy industries. This course will involve a detailed analysis of IFRS 39 as well as IFRS 13: Fair Value Measurements as applied to the accounting and valuation issues for energy derivatives. Note: a 1 day add-on (3 day conference) can be added to amplify and clarify the accounting for energy derivatives using IFRS 13: Fair Value Measurements.
