Accountants, bookkeepers, financial managers and accounting officers play important roles in the preparation, presentation and interpretation of financial statements. In these roles, they are guided by IFRS or IFRS for SMEs, the Companies Act and the Tax Administration Act. 

The aim of this webinar is to take the requirements of the above Acts and reporting standards, and condense them into an understandable and practical presentation so that application, presentation and disclosure in the financial statements is simplified for practitioners.
