Introduction

We are managing our face to face IFRS course schedule carefully right now. If the training course you want is not available, we may be offering a virtual alternative! View our Virtual Classroom schedule to see what is being delivered live in our online classrooms.

If you don’t see the IFRS training topic, you are looking for, or if you would like an online classroom in another timezone, please tell us.

You can learn more about our virtual, online courses and how they work on our Virtual course FAQ page.

This two-day IFRS Update and Application Briefing is designed for experienced preparers and users of IFRS financial statements. Its aims are to:

  • Update on published changes to IFRSs applicable for 2022 and later
  • Chart progress on significant projects in the IASB’s work plan
  • Review the practical application of key Standards in recent IFRS financial statements, including, where relevant, the impact of Covid-19

Please note that, given the specialised nature and complexity of IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts, this program does not cover it. For those with a particular interest in insurance, we recommend our three-day program, Course 1331 Insurance Contract Accounting Workshop.
