At its December 9, 2020 meeting, the Public Sector Accounting Board (“PSAB”) approved amendments to Section PS 1201,
Financial Statement Presentation to clarify the presentation of derivatives (the “Amendments”).
The Amendments relate to Phase III of the PSAB’s Financial Instruments Narrow-Scope Amendments project intended to develop a series of amendments to address specific stakeholder concerns raised related to:
Financial Instruments, Section PS 3450, requires that derivatives be measured at fair value, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of remeasurement gains and losses until the financial instrument is derecognized. Section PS 1201 requires the statement of changes in net debt to separately distinguish between changes in the fair value resulting from derivatives, portfolio investments and financial instruments which had been designated to the fair value category. Prior to the Amendments, however, PS 1201 only instructed for the statement of changes in net debt to separately present changes resulting from remeasurement gains and losses. The Amendments clarify that the remeasurement impact of derivatives may be presented separately from other remeasurement gains and losses on the statement of changes in net debt.
The Amendments also include other minor presentation clarifications:
The Amendments apply to fiscal years beginning on or after April 1, 2022 except for those government organizations that applied the CPA Canada Handbook – Accounting prior to adopting the PSA Handbook. Earlier adoption is permitted.
