For IFRS financial reporting purposes financial liabilities exclude trade and other payables and provisions.

Financial liability: any liability that is:

  • a contractual obligation:
    • to deliver cash or another financial asset to another entity; or
    • to exchange financial assets or financial liabilities with another entity under conditions that are potentially unfavourable to the entity; or
  • a contract that will or may be settled in the entity’s own equity instruments and is
    • a non-derivative for which the entity is or may be obliged to deliver a variable number of the entity’s own equity instruments; or
    • a derivative that will or may be settled other than by the exchange of a fixed amount of cash or another financial asset for a fixed number of the entity’s own equity instruments. For this purpose the entity’s own equity instruments do not include: instruments that are themselves contracts for the future receipt or delivery of the entity’s own equity instruments; puttable instruments classified as equity or certain liabilities arising on liquidation classified by IAS 32 as equity instruments.
