IAS 39 Amendments - Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement: Cash Flow Hedge Accounting of Forecast Intragroup Transactions
- Published in the Official Journal
- Didier Andries
The amendments allow entities to designate, in certain circumstances, a forecast intragroup transaction denominated in a foreign currency as the hedged item in consolidated financial statements. Thus, these amendments allow an exception from a general principle in IAS 39 that only a transaction external to the entity can be designated as a hedged item.
