TAIPEI, May 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Wolters Kluwer, a global leader in professional information, software solutions and services, today announced that Shinkong Insurance Co., Ltd. (SKI) has adopted its CCH® Tagetik expert solution to help drive compliance with IFRS 17, the newest International Financial Reporting Standards issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). SKI will also leverage CCH Tagetik to drive the digitization, accuracy, and timeliness of its financial management reports.



IASB’s IFRS 17 guidelines for insurance contracts came into effect on Jan. 1, 2023, and Taiwan is expected to officially implement this international standard in 2026. To facilitate this transition, SKI aims to integrate a sub-accounting system that complies with IFRS 17 so it can deliver accurate, compliant data, and reports in a timely manner. Following a critical evaluation of multiple vendors, SKI selected CCH Tagetik as the best software solution for accelerating this financial transformation. Taiwanese partner, Mercuries Data Systems Ltd. will serve as implementation partner for this project.

The CCH Tagetik expert solution provides standardized processes for data preparation, calculation, and accounts recording, reporting and disclosure, and it also integrates with external systems. CCH Tagetik is powered by the Analytic Information Hub, which centralizes all granular financial and operational data with process management to ensure internal alignment among businesses.

Key factors that influenced SKI’s selection of CCH Tagetik expert solution include:

  • The platform features an intuitive interface which allows for user-friendly operation by financial professionals
  • Its built-in functionality is powerful enough to meet the complex standards of IFRS 17 and flexible enough to support future upgrades
  • The solution offers detailed financial reports to efficiently disclose complex financial information

Michael Chung, Greater China Managing Director, CCH Tagetik at Wolters Kluwer, said: 
“With the Taiwanese deadline for compliance with IFRS 17 quickly approaching, companies must have in place advanced technology that can facilitate the smooth transition to these new reporting standards. We look forward to partnering with SKI as it implements the CCH Tagetik expert solution to support IFRS 17 compliance and drive the digital transformation of its financial operations.”
