Course overview

In the UK, the Accounting Council (and its predecessor, The Accounting Standards Board) have developed a new financial reporting framework based on the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) framework for all but the very smallest companies in the UK and Republic of Ireland. The US continues to consider a transition to IFRS, as are many other countries such as India and Japan.

The switch from local accounting standards to IFRS must be well thought-out, and its implications understood. It is easy to think that only those involved with accounting and finance need to get involved or will be affected by it. However, the lessons learned by the EU’s listed companies in the last phase of conversion to IFRS indicate that a much broader perspective is needed, and that the conversion must be treated as a project to be carefully planned and executed.

Introducing IFRS reporting

  • How can the main accounting impacts be identified?
  • Will there be any affect on presentation and disclosure requirements?
  • What systems and controls issues need to be considered?
