LEORON Professional Development Institute Certified IFRS Specialist LEORON Professional Development Institute

The IFRS standards are being developed on an ongoing basis and accounting professionals need to be aware of the introduction of new standards and the modifications to the existing standards. This program is designed to provide an understanding of the way the standards have come into existence, their importance in the standardization of reporting systems throughout the world, and the road to convergence for those countries that have not yet adopted the IFRS.

The program considers recently introduced standards as well as the recent IFRIC interpretations including IFRIC 9. Parallels with the IFRS, US GAAP and local standards, including SOCPA, will be discussed where relevant. The program also contains an in-depth analysis of the most important new development which is the promulgation of the IFRS for Small to Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs). These standards have been developed specifically for the SME sector which represents 90+% of all entities. They are currently being sanctioned by most IFRS adopting countries.
