About the course
For companies that do business across borders, accounting can be doubly complex, given critical differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP. This intensive, three-day course is designed for financial executives of U.S. subsidiaries of foreign companies, U.S. companies accessing foreign capital markets, those with international investors, or any other company reporting under IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards).
The course content provides in-depth, practical knowledge about the preparation of financial statements in compliance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), key differences between U.S. GAAP and IFRS, and a variety of challenges involving transitioning to and adopting IFRS. Participants are also provided an overview of the impact on non-accounting areas, such as systems, processes and controls. In addition, this course covers the new IFRS standards for revenue recognition, financial instruments, and leasing and compares them with the related U.S. GAAP requirements.
