Undoubtedly, the year 2020 disrupted a lot of plans and changed a lot of the “normal” way of doing things.  

In the accounting world, are there any changes to standards that occurred and slipped under the radar while we focused on COVID-19 lockdown restrictions and effects? 

The “Big 3” Standards (namely IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers, IFRS 16 Leases and IFRS 9 Financial Instruments) have all come on line in the last 2 years. We will spend some time discussing practical challenges and implementation issues that have been raised by these Standards.

The following are examples of IFRS standards whose amendments are effective now, in 2020!

  • IAS 1 – Presentation of Financial Statements.
  • IAS 8 – Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates & Errors.

During this webinar we will also look at the impact and considerations related to the COVID-19 pandemic on the financial statements for both the 2020 financial year-end and in preparation of the 2021 year-end.
