MACPA Collaborates with IASeminars to offer IFRS Training

Monday 18 June 2012





Maryland Association of CPAs, Inc. (MACPA) - the largest professional organization serving the needs of Maryland CPAs with a membership of nearly 10,000 - is pleased to announce that it is collaborating with IASeminars - an independent global provider of training on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) - to jointly offer a comprehensive range of IFRS-related programs.

Following recent statements from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), some 18,000 U.S. public companies may need to switch from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) to IFRS when preparing future financial statements, or else they could see important changes being made to GAAP as a result of international accounting harmonization. This transition would affect up to a million preparers and users of US financial statements. Many international companies with a presence in the United States already use IFRS, which is required or permitted in more than 120 other countries around the world.

IASeminars offers over 100 different international accounting topics in some 30 cities around the world, including Abu Dhabi, Baltimore, Chicago, Johannesburg, London, New York, Sao Paulo, Toronto and Zurich, among others. By collaborating with IASeminars, the MACPA will offer its members and other key stakeholders additional professional development opportunities on a topic that is expected to attract considerable future interest.
