IFRS 3 – Business Combinations

September2020 Providing accountants with the provisions of IFRS 3 – Business Combinations


By the end of this event the participant should:

  • Understand the scope of IFRS 3;
  • Understand the definition of business combinations;
  • Understand the measurement of goodwill;
  • Understand the method of accounting for business combinations; and
  • Understand  the disclosure of information about business combinations. 


The topic “business combinations” will always remain very conceptual and important in financial accounting

The determination of goodwill is the overall focus of this accounting standard and there are many principles that need in-depth consideration when accounting for a transaction that meets the definition of a business combination. 

Also take careful note that business combinations do not only entail acquisition of a controlling equity interest in another entity, but also the direct acquisition of assets and liabilities that form a “business”, as defined in IFRS 3.

Join our Subject Matter Expert as he discusses the principles on the recognition and measurement of acquired assets and liabilities, the determination of goodwill and the necessary disclosures.
