Product Information

What you will learn

By the end of this webinar the participant should:

  • Understand what standards of GRAP are.
  • Understand the broad application of GRAP.
  • Understand the principle difference between IFRS and GRAP.
  • Understand differences between specific IFRS and GRAP.
  • Understand practical application of specific standards of GRAP.


Standards of Generally Recognised Accounting Practice (GRAP) are issued by the Accounting Standards Board (ASB) as a requirement of section 89 of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA). The public sector is funded by public funds and as such the financial management of these funds requires strict compliance with prescripts. 

Standards of GRAP are to the public sector what International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are to private sector companies. They apply to government departments, Parliament, municipalities and commissions just to name a few.  Although generally similar to IFRS, these standards present some notable differences in the treatment of certain accounting concepts.
