It is vitally important for financial statement preparers, analysts and other users to remain technically up-to-date on the latest accounting pronouncements. A number of factors have combined to result in a period of very rapid change to IFRS. The global economic crisis, convergence projects, transitioning economies, and industry-specific issues have all converged to result in a substantial number of amendments and new pronouncements issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) in a short period of time. This two-day course brings delegates up-to-date on IASB pronouncements, including new Standards, Amendments to Standards, and Interpretations, that were issued or amended within the last 12 months, became effective recently or will become effective in the near future. The program also presents information on other recent and impending pronouncements. Topics to be covered are finalized in the run-up to the course in order to be as current as possible. The course provides information on current Exposure Drafts and Discussion Papers, as well as the IASBâ€™s most up-to-date work agenda, so that attendees can plan ahead for future changes. The status of global convergence and an update on convergence projects are covered during the program as well.
