OBJECTIVES

The mutually exclusive two days of this course are designed to provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the accounting and financial reporting requirements of key IFRS standards under IFRS including an insight into the latest changes.

As the days are mutually exclusive, it is possible to book only one of the days. See what is covered on Day 1.

The course is ideal for anyone in need of a thorough, and up to date refresher of IFRS in a practical and relevant way. It might be that you have not dealt with the detail of IFRS for some time, or that you have been focusing on a few IFRS standards in your work place, necessitating a refresher and update in all of the key areas.
