Hi everyone, I'm Hiep, i am pursuing level I. I have one issue to discuss with you. You see, there are two ways to develop statement of cashflows (direct and indirect), so, can you tell me the advantages and disadvantages of them? and when the company that we perform FSA decide to use the direct method, what are the problems we encounter?

Hey Gney,

Thankyou for your question.

My openion is that price paid for derivates is an investment and hence, is a CFI (outflow). It should be reported in B/S under investment. Contingent claims shoul be disclosed in Off-the-balance sheet disclosure. any gain or loss should be reported to Other Comprehensive Income and in Equity. I think you may have an overall idea.

Share if any alternative openion.

Hi all,
I have this doubt about FSA Level II.
Reading on defined benefit pension plan.

According to IFRS, pension liability or asset is shown on balance sheet after taking off unrecognized effects.
According to FASB it is the funded status that is shown.

When I change an assumption (lets say actuarial discount rate down) so that I have higher Projected Pension Obligation.

According to FASB funded status increases, liability increases and it is balanced by decreasing equity in Other Comprehensive Income. OK.

According to IFRS, reported liability stays the same, but I may change comprehensive income thus lowering equity.
The question is, where is the offsetting change in the Balance sheet according to IFRS?
