A brief overview of IFRS and its implications A few comments from SAP regarding IFRS SAP ERP and IFRS adoption overview SAP BusinessObjects and IFRS adoption overview Wrap-up

What is IFRS?
Key Points — IFRS Adoption
International Financial Accounting Standards Global wide standard for financial accounting and reporting Curr`ently in use in most of the world
– –

Europe, Japan, Australia, China, etc. Other countries are in the process of changing from local GAAP to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)

How it affects you — Key deadlines ICAI has “proposed” a deadline of 2011 Dual Reporting begins in 2010 Requires re-statement of opening 2010 Balance Sheet to IFRS standards IFRS cutover from Local GAAP to IFRS is 2011
– –

Local GAAP reporting requirements will not go away Some industries will still require Local GAAP reporting
– Utilities, Oil and Gas — FERC reports remain US GAAP

Other key points to consider The IFRS “answer” will be specific to your company, industry, and country

“One size fits all” does not apply for IFRS

Prior planning including your consulting/audit partner and SAP is essential for success

Are There Any Benefits to IFRS?
SAP and our Partners see these benefits
Improved quality of reporting –
A globally accepted set of principles-based standards may offer opportunities to consistently apply accounting standards

Improved transparency and investor confidence –
As use of IFRS becomes more widespread, the new standards will increase comparability for investment analysis and performance measurement

Reduced accounting complexity –
US GAAP accounting rules are viewed as complex and difficult to apply IFRS is based on “principles” not rules which will provide the opportunity for more clear representation of financial results

Potential process and cost efficiencies –
The same financial reporting standards across the world will provide opportunities to simplify and centralize financial reporting processes and functions

Cost of capital –
A single global financial reporting standard will enhance the efficiency of capital allocation and should reduce the cost of capital

Process and technology optimization –
Converting to IFRS may provide an opportunity to improve and streamline key components of the current SAP landscapes

management accounting. tax. reconcile. and SAP Services New closing process required to include additional new IFRS-specific information without increasing closing cycles Transaction changes Top-side adjustments at a consolidation level may not always be sufficient to meet all IFRS requirements — Some changes may be appropriate at the SAP ERP / transactional level Need to capture additional data / information to meet extensive disclosure requirements . There are significant impacts on: Company organization — Both corporate and subsidiary levels Valuation of individual business transactions Transactional systems — May need software and hardware upgrades Approaching key deadlines Early project planning and analysis leads to successful project Parallel reporting Need to run parallel reporting to enable prior year comparisons between the Local Accounting Standard and IFRS during the transition periods Need the ability to easily compare.

Options for SAP Solution Configuration Approaches available for multi-GAAP valuation within SAP ERP Financials Approach Account Based Parallel Company Codes Easiest to implement Can lead to a less than efficient Chart of Accounts No additional functionality planned by SAP Not a Recommend Solution for most companies Classic SAP General Ledger Parallel Ledger Most transparent approach Independent set of books Future IFRS requirements more easily accommodated Special Ledger No additional functionality planned by SAP Not a recommend solution for most companies Current recommended configuration approaches for SAP General Ledger .

Recommended option of complex installations Large differences between IFRS reporting standards and the current legal reporting standard Feeds properly formatted IFRS data directly into the Reporting and Analytics layer Simplifies reporting and requires little manual adjustment after consolidations Implementation from the beginning of fiscal year Matches IFRS time line Parallel Ledger Configuration is recommended where Segment reporting is required Increased number of Ledger accounts is not desirable Complete set of separate legal reporting books is preferred Different fiscal year is needed for different legal sets of books .Parallel Ledger Approach – Scenario 1 Applies to SAP General Ledger only Why it Works Provides IFRS and Local Accounting Standard reporting from multi-ledgers Can be configured to meet both reporting requirements from the first go-live date Utilizes the best features of the SAP General Ledger Document Splitting Segment Reporting Etc.

Account Based Approach – Scenario 2 Can Be Used Across All GL Versions Single Ledger Pure Local GAAP Accounts How it works Uses single ledger for all posting Could be the Leading Ledger for SAP General Ledger Pure IFRS Accounts Accounts are “grouped” according to legal reporting requirements Example – 300000 to 400000 Operational Chart – 500000 to 550000 IFRS – 600000 to 650000 Local GAAP Common Accounts Each group of accounts must be in balance Requires extra care to ensure correct account determination And the establishment of a coding handbook. IFRS Financial Statements report using common accounts and “pure” IFRS accounts together Red Oval in diagram Account Solution is recommended where Relatively few valuation differences exist between IFRS and local GAAP No issue with an increased number of general ledger accounts Standard reporting is used Different fiscal years not required .

Parallel Company Codes and Special Ledger Approaches Parallel Company Codes Special Ledgers Neither approach is the recommended solution for today’s environments These approach options were recommended prior to the availability of the SAP General Ledger and the capabilities added by SAP BusinessObjects In some cases these options may still be workable in special cases. but only after a through review of the other recommended options with your consulting partner and SAP .

0 and install the SAP General Ledger to meet the IFRS requirement? No. For the SAP General Ledger.Some Frequently Asked Questions SAP ERP Financials Typical Questions Do I have to upgrade to SAP ERP 6. a new migration scenario (7) is under development For the Asset Valuation area. How can I make the switch to IFRS? In this instance we would suggest using Parallel Ledgers within the SAP General Ledger A combination of the Leading Ledger and Non-Leading Ledgers would be used to report both Local GAAP and IFRS SAP has several services that will help make the switch from Local GAAP to IFRS within the Leading Ledger and Asset Valuation area. you can meet the IFRS requirements without an upgrade or the installation of the SAP General Ledger However. the adoption of IFRS would be much easier in most cases with the most current software release installed I have just upgraded and installed the SAP General Ledger and my Leading Ledger and Asset Valuation area are set to Local GAAP. an SLO service will be required .

0 and migrate to the SAP General Ledger when should I start planning the project? In this example the time is NOW! Overall we see an upgrade followed by a migration project to take at least a year.) Typical Questions What is the difference between the Account Based approach and the Parallel Ledger approach? The Account Based approach holds all legal reporting data in a single ledger Is suggested for smaller sized installations with minimal differences between Local GAAP and IFRS requirements Will add additional account numbers to the Chart of Accounts The Parallel Ledger approach distributes legal reporting data to separate parallel ledgers Is suggested for larger installations with significant differences between Local GAAP and IFRS reporting May require a separate table groups for separate ledgers If I plan to upgrade to SAP ERP 6.Some Frequently Asked Questions SAP ERP Financials (cont.

Just prior to IFRS go live fully re-consolidate history for dual reporting period in accordance with IFRS (full / separate consolidation) Option 4: Continue to consolidate under existing GAAP until IFRS go live date. During the dual reporting period the company will still file in accordance with current GAAP requirements but from IFRS “go-live” must disclose comparative results for the entire dual reporting period in accordance with IFRS . .therefore creating a requirement for reporting results under both standards. Just prior to IFRS go live books “adjustments” to re-state consolidated history for dual reporting period in accordance with IFRS Note: The length of the dual reporting period is dependent on the number of years for which comparative reporting to be provided.Implementation options Financial consolidation and reporting Prepare Opening Balance Sheet under IFRS rules Dual Reporting Period IFRS “go-live” Date (dual reporting ends) 2009 2010 2010 2011 2013 Option 1: Parallel consolidation under both existing GAAP and IFRS during dual reporting phase (separate consolidation) Option 2: Primary consolidation in accordance with one “leading” GAAP with posting of adjustments to obtain ‘non-leading’ GAAP “during” dual reporting phase Option 3: Continue to consolidate under existing GAAP until IFRS go live date.

quickly and cost effectively? Can they hold different sets of adjustments for current GAAP and IFRS as well as multiple consolidations? Can they support the various reporting requirements including creation of different reports from the same data? How have existing local GAAP rules been configured .have they been hard-coded? Can they be loosely coupled to the transaction systems through middleware. so that changes elsewhere in the systems environment do not disrupt financial reporting? Do they offer an accelerated approach or toolset for building IFRS financial statements? Are the people that designed and configured the system still with the organization? How easy will it be to roll out updated systems to the reporting units? Do they unify planning and consolidation? How easy will the system be to maintain? Can the transition be achieved without adding unnecessary risk or introducing compliance issues? .What action should I take now? Check whether your existing financial consolidation and reporting systems are capable of taking on the challenge of IFRS in parallel to your current GAAP reporting Can changes be made easily.
