The scope and nature of the engagement can vary depending on your IFRS needs and the compliance requirements of your financial statement auditor, if applicable.

Resources to demystify financial instruments
IFRS 9 incorporates the requirements of all three phases of the IASB’s financial instruments project – classification and measurement, impairment, and hedge accounting. The differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP in this area require careful consideration, for example the effective dates of IFRS 9 are different to the financial instruments standards under U.S. GAAP and debt modifications may result in different outcomes when applying the two different rules.

Navigating the new Leases standard
IFRS 16 Leases brings significant changes in accounting requirements for lease accounting, primarily for lessees. IFRS 16 is effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 2019, whereas ASC 842 Lease Accounting has later effective dates depending on the nature of the entity. Once ASC 842 becomes applicable, there are multiple differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP in this area, the main one being that IFRS 16 does not have a distinction between operating and finance leases.
