This eight-day dual-instructor workshop provides a detailed review of all significant technical IFRS requirements. It includes coverage of IFRSs, hands-on case studies, examples, exercises, and benefits from the interactive participation of the attendees. Designed as an extended version of Course 1010: IFRS Fundamentals (4-day course), this comprehensive workshop helps participants to acquire the tools necessary to understand and apply IFRSs and prepare IFRS financial statements. The program includes the latest pronouncements, and participants are brought up-to-date on all topics. In addition, participants are provided with information to assist them in researching accounting issues and monitoring future changes.
This course is ideal for individuals at all levels within an organization who need to have detailed knowledge of IFRSs. In essence, it is an opportunity to transfer a crucial new skill set to those responsible for making accounting decisions and preparing, reviewing or approving IFRS financial statements. The program is generic and does not focus on any one particular industry.
Presented by two experienced IFRS instructors, this program gives participants the benefit of decades of IFRS experience. Delegates receive the benefit of more than one view of IFRS and the opportunity to ask questions, receiving thorough answers to their individual questions from the presenters’ past experiences. Our specialist instructors explain the principles clearly and simply and provide real-world examples, including an overview of the requirements for first time adoption of IFRS and the practicalities of implementing IFRS.
The program includes coverage of Standards with future applicability, Exposure Drafts and the IASB’s future plans, giving participants up-to-the-minute information and providing an ability to foresee how anticipated and published changes may affect their organizations.
