The key difference between PAS and IFRS as regards accounting for insurance contracts and investment contracts of PZU is the classification of contracts. In PAS there is no concept of investment contract and as a result all contracts are classified as insurance contracts. According to IFRS, the classification of contracts should follow the guidelines included in IFRS 4 regarding the classification of products as insurance contracts (subject to IFRS 4) or as investment contracts (recognized in accordance with IAS 39). In case of the latter, the written premium is not recognized. The classification of contracts is described in Note 6.1.2.
