IFRS 4 © IASCF 397 International Financial Reporting Standard 4 Insurance Contracts (IFRS 4) is set out in paragraphs 1–45 and Appendices A–C. All the paragraphs have equal authority. Paragraphs in bold type state the main principles. Terms defined in Appendix A are in italics the first time they appear in the Standard. Definitions of other terms are given in the Glossary for International Financial Reporting Standards. IFRS 4 should be read in the context of its objective and the Basis for Conclusions, the Preface to International Financial Reporting Standards and the Framework for the Preparation and Presentation of Financial Statements . IAS 8 Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors provides a basis for selecting and applying accounting policies in the absence of explicit guidance.

IFRS 4 398 © IASCF Introduction Reasons for issuing the IFRS IN1 This is the first IFRS to deal with insurance contracts. Accounting practices for insurance contracts have been diverse, and have often differed from practices in other sectors. Because many entities will adopt IFRSs in 2005, the International Accounting Standards Board has issued this IFRS: (a) to make limited improvements to accounting for insurance contracts until the Board completes the second phase of its project on insurance contracts. (b) to require any entity issuing insurance contracts (an insurer) to disclose information about those contracts.
