On initial recognition, a financial guarantee contract is measured at fair value.
Financial guarantees after initial recognition are measured at the higher value of:
- the amount of the impairment loss determined in accordance with the principles applicable to impairment losses for assets measured at amortised cost in accordance with IFRS 9,
- the amount initially recognised less the cumulative income recognised in accordance with the principles of IFRS 15.
For loan commitments and financial guarantee contracts, the date on which the Group becomes a party to the irrevocable commitment is considered as the date of initial recognition for the purpose of applying the impairment requirements.
