After navigating the chaos of 2020, 2021 is about settling into our new normal and getting back to basics.  IFRS for SMEs has been the subject of an intensive comprehensive review, so this session will focus on consolidating where IFRS for SMEs is currently, and discussing the proposed changes to the standards.

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 few years.  These Standards have been identified as being targeted for alignment into IFRS for SMEs.  As such, we will spend some time discussing these Standards, the practical challenges and implementation issues that have been raised by these Standards for IFRS.

Register to join us for all the important updates that are crucial for the accountant going forward.
