|4.b. Valuation of loans and deposits; Write-off and interest accrual on impaired loans
|Issue description and recommendation
The valuation of loan positions and deposits are subject to alternative perspectives. Nominal or face value valuation might be misleading because of the risk of default and/or changes in interest rates. This difference becomes apparent when the loans are traded. However, these valuation issues are equally applicable to non-traded loans. Business accounting standards are considering using the concept of "fair value" for the valuation of loans as if they were traded. Should the SNA introduce a valuation other than nominal for deposits and loans?
