        2. Uncovered transactions: recorded in functional currency using spot rate at transaction date
          1. Transaction date: Date when risks & rewards of ownership are transferred to purchaser
          2. Covered transactions
            1. Firm commitment = binding agreement for the exchange of a specified quantity of resources at specific price & future date
              1. Forecast transaction = uncommitted but anticipated future transaction
                1. Hedging instrument = designated derivative (hedge of risk of change in forex rates only); OR = designated non-derivative fin. asset; OR = non-derivative fin. liability whose fair value / CFj are expected to offset changes in the FV / CFj of a desinated hedged item
                2. Uncovered transactions
                  1. At spot rate t.i.a: >MI recorded at closing spot rate at year end [ gives rise to FOREX G/L ]; >NMI recorded at spot rate always
                  2. Hedge accounting
                    1. Criteria to hedge: (Only if ALL are met)
                      1. > At inception of hedge item there is a formal designation & documentation of the hedging relationship; > Hedge is expected to be highly effective; > For CFj hedges, a forecast transaction MUST be highly probable & present an exposure to variations in cash flows that effect P/L; > Effectiveness of hedge reliably measured; > Hedge is assessed on an ongoing basis.
                      2. Fair value hedge
                        1. Underlying transaction present
                          1. Steps to account
                            1. 1. Entering into FEC = No transaction recorded; 2. IF YR/END AFTER SETTLEMENT = G/L on settlement of FEC the diff between MI recorded at spot rate on settlement date & amount paid/received ito FEC; 3. IF YR/END IS BEFORE SETTLEMENT = G/L on FEC is diff between contracted forward rate & contract forward rate of Similar FEC for remaining period until maturity; 4. IF FEC IS RENEWED OR ROLLED FORWARD = on maturity date recognise G/L on FEC as that between original forward rate & spot rate at that date.
                          2. Cash flow hedge
                            1. No underlying transaction
                              1. Steps to account
                                1. 1. Entering into FEC = No transaction recorded; 2. When UT is recorded OR YR/END reached, value of FEC = Foreign currency X [ Contracted forward rate less similar FEC on remaining period rate ] ; 3. Decide IF hedge effective, recognise G/L in SCE, IF ineffective, recognise G/L in P/L
                                  1. IF recognised in SCE :
                                    1. Fin. asset/liability recognised: >G/L recogn. directly in Equity is reclassified to I/S in period the A/L affects I/S ; > any unrecoverable amount is recogn. in I/S if entity expects all/portion of loss recogn. in E will not be recovered in future.
                                      1. Non-financial asset/liability or firm commitment: >G/L recogn. directly in Equity is reclassified to I/S in period the A/L affects I/S ; OR reclassify G/L to asset/ liability so covered.
