IASeminars and Grant Thornton

Thursday 12 July 2012


More than 100 countries around the world have officially adopted International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the London-based International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). In Brazil, IFRS is being applied to the consolidated financial statements of banks and listed companies, but with certain amendments and differences. This is a complex matter, and can be confusing and difficult - according to the Grant Thornton International Business Report (IBR) 2012, some 56% of Brazilian companies have not yet completed their IFRS transition.

To help Brazilian companies with their reporting requirements, Grant Thornton - the fifth largest accounting firm in the country - is pleased to be collaborating with the UK-based IASeminars group to offer a broad range of IFRS and US GAAP training courses in Brazil. By working together, the specialists from both companies will be able to assist clients with their questions on IFRS theory and application.

For more information on courses offered in collaboration with Grant Thornton Brasil, view details of our upcoming events in Sao Paulo.

Grant Thornton Brasil firma parceria com IASeminars e anuncia cursos de treinamento em IFRS e US GAAP

Atualmente, mais de 100 países ao redor do mundo adotaram o novo padrão contábil IFRS emitido pelo International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), em Londres. No Brasil, o IFRS está sendo aplicado nas demonstrações financeiras consolidadas dos bancos e de empresas de capital aberto, mas com alterações e diferenças do modelo original.

Essas alterações causam confusão nas companhias na hora de colocar em prática a nova metodologia. De acordo com a Grant Thornton International Business Report (IBR) 2012, aproximadamente 56% das empresas brasileiras ainda não completaram a transição para o IFRS.

Para ajudar as empresas brasileiras nessa fase, a Grant Thornton Brasil, 5ª maior empresa de auditoria do Brasil, firmou parceria com a IASeminars de Londres, especialista mundial em seminários e cursos de contabilidade internacional, e passa a oferecer no País uma ampla gama de cursos de IFRS e US GAAP. Juntas, as empresas poderão contribuir com as companhias na teoria e aplicação do IFRS.
