Assessment of financial assets using IFRS 9 tool

Perform SPPI test

  1. The SPPI spreadsheet contains a series of questions that assess whether a particular debt instrument e.g. a loan meets the ”solely payments of principal and interest” criteria.
  2. Depending on the answers given the tool determines:
  • The instrument meets the test and should be measured at amortised cost;
  • The test is not met. It is necessary to perform a benchmark test; or
  • The test is not met. The instrument should be measured at fair value.

Determine an impairment loss allowance for trade receivables

  1. The tool analyses the payment history of trade receivables
  2. The user is only required to input basic data concerning past trade receivables
  3. On the basis of this data the tool calculates expected loss impairment allowances for each group of trade receivables.

Estimate fair value or impairment loss allowances for loans or other debt instruments

Fair value

  1. The tool determines a credit rating for the counterparty based on its financial data...
  2. ... and then – on the basis of the credit rating – estimates a market discount rate to be used when discounting expected cash flows from the instrument

Impairment loss allowance

  1. The tool assesses the credit risk of the counterparty – at initial recognition of the debt instrument and as at the balance sheet date;
  2. After the user provides answers to a few questions the tool allocates the debt instrument to Stage 1, Stage 2 or Stage 3.  
  3. The tool then calculates an impairment loss allowance as at the balance sheet date
