Korean Shipbuilders Get Break from Accounting Rules

Monday, August 02, 2010

According to a July 30 report from the JoongAng Daily, with the scheduled adoption of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) shipbuilders were expected to see higher debt ratios. However, the Financial Services Commission and Financial Supervisory Service said that the International Accounting Standards Board (ISAB), the London-based group that supervises the IFRS, had accepted in principle a request by Korean financial authorities to allow a fair value hedge accounting system in the case of the shipbuilders. A fair value hedge system would allow shipbuilders to declare an intermediate payment in their financial accounts for contracts they received.
