Just creating accounting directions isn’t enough – we help bring everyone up to a consistent benchmark whether through live virtual classrooms or bespoke elearning.

Technical CPD updates

We deliver cutting edge accounting updates looking at all the latest IFRS standards released and also what is in the pipeline for IFRS.
We look at topical real world issues and how these will affect your organisation.

Specific Challenges

Many businesses face particular challenges with specific IFRS standards, whether that is IFRS 15 Revenue or IFRS 16 Leases or perhaps IAS 36 Impairment.
We can deliver bespoke IFRS training courses looking at the specific challenges faced by your organisation.

Who follows IFRS and why?

The primary goal of IFRS is to have a single set of high quality global accounting standards applied by all entities around the world. As the world is becoming “smaller” –  with more and more cross border transactions and the flow of investments around the world – having a single set of applicable accounting rules is becoming more important.

The IASB have been (in my opinion) very successful in getting many countries around the world to see the benefit of IFRS standards.   At time of writing over 140 jurisdictions around the world require IFRS standards!

In the UK there is currently a regulatory requirement for listed groups to follow IFRS. Other companies are able to choose between UK GAAP and IFRS. Historically most companies would stay with UK GAAP unless there was a good reason to diverge (perhaps they were planning an IPO).  We are seeing an increasing trend for organisations to voluntarily adopt IFRS, maybe to attract inward investment or perhaps as they see it as best practice.
