IFRS Seminar

Theme: Achieving IFRS Compliance in a Dynamic Environment

This is one of the mandatory trainings for Practicing Certificate consideration

Date: 7th – 8th April 2021

Platform: Virtual/Zoom


International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) guide the accounting treatment and presentation of transactions and other events in the financial statements. Even though the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has made significant progress towards the global adoption of IFRS and achieve uniformity, the business environment is dynamic, especially with the recent Covid 19 pandemic.

As a result, companies are facing challenges in applying fundamental concepts of recognition, measurement, valuation and reporting of assets, and the preparation of financial statements. For example, many entities have had to change their business models and provide products and services virtually, leading to low asset utilization. Assets like property, plant and equipment and investment property may therefore require careful analysis from recognition, measurement and valuation and even presentation. The same case applies for liabilities arising from leases and financial instruments, beside the threat on the going concern of the entire entity.

It is against this backdrop that the Institute has organized a two-day virtual workshop to engage preparers, auditors and other key stakeholders on addressing these challenges especially as entities consider the annual reports for year 2020.
