This IFRS training course is intended as a detailed workshop on IFRS for participants who are already familiar with the basics of accounting for investment activities, and who need to deepen and reinforce their understanding of this particularly complex area of accounting, both at the strategic and at the technical level.
The IFRS training course will primarily focus on the problems of applying general-purpose accounting standards to the special circumstances of the client’s own investment activities.
This intensive programme is strongly focused on the application of the relevant provisions of IFRS to a wide variety of real-life situations. It is designed as a hands-on experience for the participants, with a minimum of ‘chalk-and-talk’ and a maximum of interaction among participants and between them and the trainer. Participants will be encouraged to bring their own experience – and problems – to bear on the topics covered by the programme.
The outline is to be taken as indicative only, and subject to detailed discussion of the client’s specific needs. For instance, it can readily be modified to accommodate sessions on IAS 20 (Government Grants) and IAS 24 (Related Parties) if these were to be of interest.
