PwC's Academy International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) PwC's Academy

As International Financial Reporting Standards have become more widely used around the world they have also changed. Some of the changes have been substantial in the areas of revenue recognition, financial instruments and leases but many other changes have taken place which are less 'headline grabbing'.

As strategies change within organisations or roles change, accountants need to refresh their knowledge of the standards to ensure that they are applying not only the right versions of the standards but that they are doing it in an efficient manner.

This interactive five day course provides an in-depth insight into all of the major technical IFRS requirements.
