IFRS 9 - Expected Credit Loss

A Brief Overview of IFRS 9

The incurred loss model approach has been replaced by the expected credit loss (ECL) model under IFRS 9, which enables organizations to recognize an allowance for expected credit losses at each reporting period. This shift in approach aims to improve the recognition of credit losses by incorporating forward-looking information and addressing concerns about delayed recognition. Although there is no specific methodology defined within the scope of IFRS 9 to estimate ECL, the standard requires the calculations to incorporate:

Expected Value

Probability Weighted

Integrated Analysis

Present Value

The seed of this work was sown in 1966. A major UK-based multinational had a pension scheme in Pakistan since the early 1950’s. The scheme was insured and administered by the Pakistan branch of a leading UK life insurer. At the suggestion of a young Pakistani executive, and with the blessing of the UK Head Office, the company decided in the 1966 to withdraw the scheme from the insurer and self-administer it. It contacted Saiyid Saeed Akhtar to negotiate the withdrawal, and he became the scheme’s Consulting Actuary.

By the Grace of Allah, pension consultancy has expanded greatly. The expansion was driven by competition among top employers to attract good personnel. Also, employers realized that without pension and gratuity schemes, their employees would suffer a big drop in income when they retire. Another incentive is their tax-effectiveness. With negligible exceptions, pension schemes are self-administered with the help of consulting actuaries. A strong boost was given to our practice by the Income Tax Ordinance, 1979, which introduced Approved Pension and Gratuity Funds, and provided tax incentives to employers and employees to set these up.

For defined benefit pension and gratuity schemes, accounting standards require periodic actuarial valuation and certification of cost of such schemes, irrespective of whether or not they are funded. The international Accounting Standards Board introduced International Accounting Standard 19, which the SECP Authority has made applicable to Pakistani companies. All this encouraged our practice in the retirement benefits field enabling us to make IAS 19 calculations for companies in Pakistan. The objective of IAS 19 is to prescribe the accounting and disclosure for employee benefits, requiring an entity to recognize a liability where an employee has provided service and an expense when the entity consumes the economic benefits of employee service. The liability and cost are formulated using an actuarial technique known as the Projected Unit Credit method.

We can help your organization to:

Measure the cost of your pension and gratuity schemes by actuarial valuations.

Study objectively whether your retirement/separation benefit package is competitive, and suggest necessary amendments, if any, working out their cost.

Set up or amend your retirement and separation benefit schemes, including documentation.

Administer these schemes, including maintenance of necessary accounting and other records, monitoring investments and suggesting appropriate investment strategy.

National Pension Schemes; Social Security

We can help Governments and other official bodies to make actuarial valuations and projections of their national pension and social insurance schemes, and health schemes. We can also help to design and amend such schemes.

Pakistan’s embryonic National Pension Scheme is the EOBI scheme. We have been closely associated with this from its inception in 1976. The major changes in 1986 were designed by us, under which the minimum pension was raised sharply to a meaningful level. We have conducted several valuations of the scheme and introduce major reforms to improve the scheme, and our active association continues.

We have carried out valuations of the Sindh Provincial Social Security Scheme. We carried out field studies as to the rates of hospitalisation, length of hospitalisation and the frequency of medical consultation

Other Areas

Here are other areas where we can help your organisation, based on our past experience:
we can help your organisation to review its non-life insurances, covering material damage, consequential loss and liability insurances.

we can help you to set up workable and sound medical schemes for both serving and retired employees, and to estimate current and deferred costs.

In many countries, non life insurance companies now use actuaries heavily. Some countries require actuarial certification of non-life insurance loss reserves. We have advised on loss reserves of the Pakistan Insurance and the National Insurance Corporations, and on non-proportional reinsurance. If you are running a non-life insurance organisation, we can help you in these areas.

Finally, if you are running a modaraba or leasing company, we can help you to devise appropriate leasing systems and to make financial projections
