ISCA issues FRB 9 (Revised January 2023) on Accounting Implications Of The Interest Rate Benchmark Reform In Singapore


The global shift away from interbank offered rates and move towards the adoption of alternative, nearly risk-free benchmark rates is commonly known as Interest Rate Benchmark Reform (IBOR Reform). In Singapore, Singapore Overnight Rate Average (SORA) will replace Swap Offer Rate (SOR) and Singapore Interbank Offered Rate (SIBOR) as the alternative interest rate benchmark by 2024. This will affect all existing Singapore dollar-denominated financial products referencing SOR or SIBOR in their contracts.

ISCA issues FRB 9 (Revised January 2023) Accounting Implications of the Interest Rate Benchmark Reform to share accounting considerations on specific matters to assist entities in their understanding of the accounting for financial instruments and hedge accounting which are affected by the replacement of interest rate benchmarks within these contracts.
