This four-day seminar has been designed to provide participants with comprehensive knowledge needed to understand the overall considerations that are applied in the presentation of financial statements. It considers the various recognition and measurement principles under the different classes of assets and liabilities. It considers the fundamental disclosures and considerations that underpin financial statement preparation and provides participants with insight into first-time adoption issues and future developments. By the end of the course the participants will be able to:


  • Prepare financial statements for single companies in compliance with the standards covered on the programme 

  • Prepare financial statements for groups in compliance with the standards covered 

  • Prepare financial statements incorporating many aspects of financial instrument accounting

This course is for Accountants, Bankers, Portfolio Managers, Securities Analysts, Pension Fund Managers, internal auditors, regulators, and Financial Analysts, but is also appropriate for a broader audience who wish to gain an in-depth understanding of International Financial Reporting Standards, the conceptual framework and how these are being used globally.
