Property and casualty insurers prepare to report under IFRS 17
The International Accounting Standards Board’s (IASB) insurance contracts standard, IFRS 17, will include the option to use a ‘simplified’ accounting model for certain eligible contracts. This model, called the Premium Allocation Approach (PAA), is expected to be widely used by property and casualty (P&C) insurers.
The PAA is intended to be simpler to apply than the standard’s general measurement model and may appear similar to current P&C accounting in some jurisdictions. However, while it might seem at first that little is changing, a look below the surface reveals a number of challenges arising for insurers expecting to apply the PAA.
In the fourth of our webcast series – P&C insurers prepare to report under IFRS 17 – we will explore how the PAA works in practice and consider some of the financial implications by going through a few illustrative examples.

As investors and regulators strive for ever-accelerated reporting timetables, insurers will want to streamline processes and ensure clear, concise communication to shareholders, investors and other key stakeholders. KPMG’s approach is distinctive, recognizing that this is more than just a technical accounting and actuarial issue.
We would be happy to discuss any questions you might have in your preparation for IFRS 17.
