International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) are the world’s most widely applied accounting standards. Over 120 countries now require or permit the use of IFRSs. Over 7,000 public companies in the European Union have complied with IFRS since 2005. Most other countries are either adopting IFRSs or have decided to converge their national standards with 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. In addition to a review of current IFRSs, course delegates also receive an update on the major new standards on revenue, leases, and financial instruments and the probable impact of their adoption.
