IFRS 9 requires a change in how financial assets are classified, measured and expected credit loss is accounted for. Our offer will enable you to meet a regulatory requirement in a cost-effective way, using Mala'a data alongside them.

What is IFRS 9?

IFRS 9 is a new international accounting standard replacing IAS 39. It sets out the requirements for recognising and measuring financial assets and liabilities. In particular, it sets requirements on the assessment of the risk of a loan portfolio, based on statistical forecasts of expected losses from defaulted loans. For each existing Credit contract, an Expected Credit Loss must be calculated against which provisions must be set aside by the Credit Provider.

The basic formula for calculating Expected Credit Losses is:

Expected Credit Losses must be calculated either for the next 12 months of the contract’s life or the remaining lifetime of the contract.

Asset @ Stage 1

Initial recognition of asset OR credit risk has not increased significantly since initial recognition.


Asset @ Stage 2

Credit risk has increased significantly since initial recognition AND the resulting level isn’t considered to be a low Credit Risk.

Lifetime ECL

Asset @ Stage 3

Credit impaired asset:
likely to be in default.
