What you will learn

This course gives an update on two IFRSs:

  • IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and
  • IFRS 16 Leases

IFRS 15 came into effect for accounting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018. Learn how to apply the five-step model and about the possible judgmental areas involved. Also obtain an understanding of the new reporting and disclosure requirements.

IFRS 16 Leases significantly changes the way lessees account for leases. It comes into effect for accounting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019 and will replace IAS 17 in its entirety. The course will cover the new accounting treatment for lease transactions, practical challenges and the transition methods and exemptions available.

Who should attend

This specialised course is aimed at auditors, finance directors, financial controllers and financial accountants who are dealing with IFRS or preparing for it.
