Course Description

The application of IFRS 17 to takaful presents the accounting fraternity with a challenge. Is takaful a mutual or is it an insurance company? The application of IFRS 17 is different for a mutual compared to insurance and thus this argument is fundamental to the whole discussion.

This webinar will first consider how takaful is accounted under MFRS 4 and then discusses the MASB Paper on the application of IFRS 17 to takaful.

This presentation is free to the public, however, registration is required to access.
