For companies subject to IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) and U.S. GAAP requirements, accounting can be doubly complex given critical differences between the two frameworks.
Financial reporting professionals face a variety of challenges as they prepare statements in compliance with IFRS and even more when adopting IFRS. Non-accounting areas – such as systems, processes and controls – can present additional hurdles.
KPMG Executive Education, through its extensive IFRS portfolio, provides in-depth, practical knowledge that can equip financial reporting professionals to make their financial statements coherent and consistent across different industries and countries.
Courses are designed for financial executives of U.S. subsidiaries of foreign companies, U.S. companies accessing foreign capital markets or with international investors, and any other company reporting under IFRS.
Live Virtual Seminars
IFRS Practical Application and Comparison to US GAAP is a two-day course (16 CPE) taught by KPMG thought leaders that focuses on important differences between FASB and IASB pronouncements and the information needed to make appropriate adjustments for those differences in the financial statements. Recent IFRS standards for revenue recognition, financial instruments and leases are also covered, and each is compared with the related U.S. GAAP requirements.
Public In-Person Seminars cover the most relevant and trending topics to help accounting and financial reporting professionals avert skill gaps and thrive. The interactive format allows for a candid exchange of ideas, completion of interactive case studies and exercises, and real time instructor feedback. Our public seminars can also be offered in-house for your company.
Our virtual seminar (16 hours over 4 days) is an equivalent of our in-person seminar and focuses on important differences between FASB and IASB pronouncements and the information needed to make appropriate adjustments for those differences in the financial statements. Recent IFRS standards for revenue recognition, financial instruments and leases are also covered, and each is compared with the related U.S. GAAP requirements. The course is delivered in one-hour modules with breaks and interactivity.
