IFRS: Managing the transition

Manage the transition to financial reporting under IFRS

Financial Reporting under IFRS Online CPD Training Course

All EU listed companies report under IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) in their group accounts. The UK’s Accounting Standards Board has proposed that some UK companies and other reporting entities will be required to, or have the option to, move to a more IFRS-based financial reporting framework. There is potential for the US to consider a transition to IFRS in the future, 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.
