Continually expanding disclosure requirements and proposals for changes in the presentation of basic financial statements make it important not only to comply with current and newly-enacted requirements, but to understand the upcoming changes that are likely to occur. Increasing scrutiny of your firm’s reported footnotes by investors also offers an opportunity to enhance your company’s investor relations strategy with thoughtfully prepared disclosures.
This two-day workshop not only reviews the IFRS requirements and teaches the skills needed to prepare full and complete financial statements and footnotes, but also provides participants with insight into future changes.
The program answers questions such as:
- What are the IFRS requirements relating to presentation and disclosures?
- In which areas are alternative presentations allowed?
- What are the most important issues to consider when preparing disclosures?
- How do the presentation and disclosure choices made affect investor perceptions?
- What are the upcoming changes in IFRS and when will they be effective?
- How might future reporting and disclosure change to reflect the concept of management commentary?
Understanding of basic accounting principles based on any national standard.
No advance preparation is required for this course.
