Companies reporting under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) continue to face a steady flow of new standards and interpretations. The resulting changes range from significant amendments of fundamental principles to some minor changes from the annual improvements process. The changes will affect different areas of accounting, such as recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure. It can be time-consuming and confusing to keep up to date on the resulting impact on financial statements and disclosures. This course provides an executive summary of recent IFRS updates with current and upcoming effective dates.

    • Costs charged to PP&E in the “testing” phase

    • Calculating the 10 percent test for determining substantially different cash flows
  • Discover highlights of recently issued IFRS pronouncements, focusing on changes with upcoming effective dates, such as:
