IFRS and US GAAP Training Programmes

Following the success of the IFRS / US GAAP courses held over the world by our experts & partners, PIRON Education & ATC International are pleased to announce various IFRS / US GAAP In-Company and Public Training programmes in INDIA

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is a set of accounting standards, developed by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) that is becoming the global standard for the preparation of public company financial statements. The IASB is an independent accounting standards body, based in London.

Importance of IFRS
While converting to IFRS is a complex process, these standards have important and positive implications for organizations and individuals that adopt them. 1. For companies: Reduced cost of capital and the ease of using one consistent reporting standard from subsidiaries in many different countries. 2. For investors: Better information for decision making, leading to broader investment opportunities. 3. For national regulatory bodies: Better information for market participants in a disclosure-based system.

The Purpose of IFRS

Today businesses are crossing their national boundaries, promoting the synchronization of accounting standards across the globe. The objective behind the IFRS is to create a common platform for better understanding of accounting, internationally. By adopting IFRS, a business can present its financial statements on the same basis as its foreign competitors, making comparisons easier. WIDER APPLICABILITY Furthermore, most jurisdictions that report under IFRS, including the EU, mandate the use of IFRS only for the listed companies. However, in INDIA, IFRS would apply to a wider group of entities than their international counterparts. This is primarily because of a large number of private enterprises getting covered under the size criteria, based on their turnover and/or their borrowing. Companies also may need to convert to IFRS if they are a subsidiary of a foreign company that must use IFRS, or if they have a foreign investor that must use IFRS.
