Course background
The move to IFRS is sweeping the world. Examples of this trend include:
  • As of 2005 listed entities in the European Union apply IFRS
  • The US Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) is considering a mandatory transition to IFRS for US companies
  • Canada requires IFRS for its listed companies as of 2011
  • Australia and Hong Kong require listed companies to use IFRS
  • Japan is converging with IFRS
  • India is in the process of adopting IFRS
  • Several Middle Eastern and South American countries have adopted IFRS and several more are considering it
Accurately applying IFRS is a demanding process that requires planning and thought. The standards are principles-based and require a good understanding of the underlying concepts as well as the application of extensive professional judgement.
This course will help delegates to understand the significant issues to address when applying IFRS. Participants will also receive information on the latest developments and anticipated changes to IFRS. Using real-world company financial statements and other case studies, delegates will learn how to put IFRS accounting principles into practice.
