International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS Standards) continue to be adopted by an increasing number of jurisdictions and organisations around the world. This presents both challenges and opportunities to those who produce and use financial statements. As IFRS Standards are adopted and evolve financial policies, processes and systems need to be reviewed and often changed.

To meet this challenge, the ICAEW has developed an IFRS Standards learning and assessment programme that will help you understand and implement IFRS Standards with confidence.

It also has the additional benefit of formally verifying your achievement through an optional online assessment.


""Thanks to the Instructor for keeping this course interesting and give real life examples about the financial tools we learned into practise." "
