4.4. Disclosures and comparative data
In the Group’s opinion, the application of IFRS 9 requires making considerable changes to the manner of presentation and the scope of disclosures concerning the area of financial instruments, in particular in the first year of its application, when extensive information about the opening balance and restatements made is required. The Group intends to use the IFRS 9 provisions which exempt entities from the obligation to restate the comparative data for the prior periods with regard to changes resulting from classification and measurement as well as impairment. Differences in the carrying amounts of financial assets and liabilities resulting from the application of IFRS 9 were recognized as an unappropriated profit in equity as at 1 January 2018.
