IFRS - Practical Application and Comparison to U.S. GAAP

This intensive, two-day course is intended to provide an understanding of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), some of the key differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP, and what is required to reconcile those differences.

It is designed for financial executives of U.S. subsidiaries of foreign companies, as well for executives of U.S. domiciled companies interested in accessing capital markets outside the United States which require the preparation of financial statements in accordance with IFRS.  Past sessions received excellent marks from attendees for both the extent of the topics covered and the practical knowledge of the presenters.

Integrated into the program is discussion of significant non-accounting considerations that must be considered, such as the impact on systems, processes, and controls when transitioning from U.S. GAAP to IFRS. In addition, sufficient time has been reserved for Q&A.
