Hedged Item

Under Hedge accounting, a hedged item can be a recognised asset or liability (AR/AP, account receivable/payable), an unrecognised firm commitment (SO/PO, sales order/purchase order), a forecast transaction or a net investment in a foreign operation. The hedged item can be a single item (for example, an individual transaction) or a group of items (for example, the sum of forecast transactions). A hedged item can also be a component of such an item or group of items. The hedged item must be reliably measurable.
