  • Summary

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, many traditional businesses have pivoted towards a hybrid online-offline business model to sustain their operations. Organisations have invested in software or digital technologies to innovate and grow. Besides digitalisation, we had seen entities offering various financial instruments with unique features to attract investors for their capital needs.

These new developments and initiatives have created challenges for Finance teams to determine the appropriate accounting treatment for these software costs as well as the financial instruments issued.
