Introduction

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) are the world’s most widely applied accounting standards. More than 140 countries now require or permit the use of IFRSs.

This five-day course provides a rigorous and detailed overview of all major technical IFRS requirements, and includes illustrative financial statements, case studies, examples, coverage of the most significant IFRSs, and interactive participation from the delegates.

For many entities, disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic presents significant challenges in applying IFRSs. The course will highlight the areas most likely to be affected and develop practical approaches in response.        

This program answers questions such as:

  • How are IFRS recognition and measurement principles applied?
