This course gives an update on two recent IFRSs – 15 (Revenue from Contracts with Customers) and 16 (The New Leases Standard)

IFRS 15 comes into effect for accounting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2017, subject to endorsement by the EU. The IFRS contains special transitional implementations and exemptions. Learn how to identify changes to reporting requirements, practical tips on how to take advantage of implementation exemptions, and obtain guidance on a number of practical problem areas.

On 13 January 2016 the International Accounting Standard Board issued a new accounting standard, called IFRS 16 - Leases. This standard replaces accounting requirements which were introduced over thirty years ago. It is a major revision of the way in which companies account for leases. The new standard is formed after multiple rounds of public consultation and has been part of collaborations with the US Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB).  The course will cover the current accounting requirements under IAS 17 and then consider the accounting for such transactions under the new lease accounting exposure draft.

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