An IAS 19 actuarial valuation is an assessment of a company’s current and future liabilities using an agreed set of financial and demographic assumptions that are based on the actuary’s best estimates, preferably supported by historical data. An IAS 19 actuarial valuation requires skilled personnel, both in qualification and in specific experience and application, to meet the stringent reporting requirements. It makes sense to appoint an experienced actuary to annually perform this task.
In the Middle East and North Africa regions, companies are working towards meeting global best practice standards as set out in the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
