Course Level
The global acceptance of IFRS as a basis for financial reporting for both publically traded entities and other entities of public interest, such as state-owned entities, nonprofit entities, creates a demand for highly trained financial professionals to implement such standards and principles. Even those with basic knowledge of IFRS and not involved in preparation of financial reports need to stay abreast of the current developments in financial reporting, as changes may affect the drafting of sales contracts and lease agreements, to name a few specific hot topics. 
Currently over 9,000 European companies have converted to IFRS for financial reporting, countries such as Brazil, Canada, China, India, Japan, Malaysia, Nigeria, Russia, and the USA, are adopting or converging their financial reporting standards to IFRS.
This workshop is appropriate for both the novice in IFRS financial reporting who needs to be up-to-date quickly, and the veteran financial professional who is looking for a refresher course which will address current issues and projects.
