Course Description

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) encourage transparency and accountability of financial statements prepared by companies, small firms, and government agencies. It minimizes the margin of error and manipulation of any holdings and irregularities of funds, transactions, and balances. IFRS are accepted and followed for these and many more benefits. However, its implementation is tricky. It requires an in-depth understanding of some of the crucial concepts for correct interpretations.

When reporting under IFRS, U.S. Publicly Accountable Enterprises (PAEs), including the U.S. publicly traded companies, must publish their first comparative financial statements (including quarterly statements) based on IFRS. They will need to implement the new standards well in advance of that date using IFRS Standard #1. It was issued specifically to help companies in their transition including a reconciliation financial statement bridging the gap between the two – GAAP and IFRS. This course outlines the step-by-step process for implementation examining the required factors to carefully consider.

IAS 16 Property, plant, and equipment deals with the tangible fixed assets except the assets held for capital appreciation. Fixed assets attract a large amount of record-keeping and specific accounting treatment under the IFRS accounting framework. The first recording of the long-lived assets and periodic re-evaluation of long-lived assets under certain conditions are some of the concerns that an accountant should be aware of and look closely to. This online CPE webinar covers this and many other factors that are required to attend to while implementing IFRS for the fixed assets. It will discuss examples that will help in understanding and eventually the development of the process to fulfill the accounting requirements for the fixed assets.

Revenue recognition covers a wide range of potential points at which revenue can be recognized. In this CPE webinar speaker, Michel Morley addresses revenue recognition principles for both IFRS and GAAP. IFRS changes how companies recognize revenue on their financial statements. Accountants are expected to decide how to choose the appropriate recognition strategy for each type of transaction, event, and fair valuation using specific guidance. This course covers easy-to-follow guidelines to comply with by examining the factors that need careful consideration. 

Fair value recognition is an important subject with reference to changes in IFRS and US GAAP. This online CPE course helps accountants to track the expected impact of the changes in the rules that must be disclosed in the current financial statements. Such disclosures need notes to reach a certain decision. The webinar covers detailed examples of measuring the fair value of individual assets, especially as prepared by a valuation specialist.

This online CPE Course on Accounting covers the following Key topics: 

  • Scope, applicability, and exceptions of Standard #1
  • Sizing up the impacts of implementation: questions you need to ask
  • Planning the approach: accounting policies and decision criteria
  • Mixed asset valuation model: revaluation and historical cost
  • Setting up the opening IFRS balance sheet and GAAP/IFRS reconciliation requirement
  • Transitional provisions, Disclosure requirements, and financial statement presentation
  • Practical examples to help develop an understanding of the process and requirements of switching over to IFRS from GAAP.
  • Concepts and rules for Property, Plant, and Equipment; and Choices of Revaluation methods and their review under IFRS
  • Impairment of tangible long-lived assets, Capitalization of borrowing costs, Retirements, and other disposals of long-lived assets
  • Nonmonetary (exchange) transactions
  • Examine concepts and rules for revenue recognition, and Review nonmonetary (exchange) transactions
  • Understand service contracts, construction contracts, joint ventures, and shared contracts accounting under IFRS
  • Understand accounting for change orders, contract options, and claims

The presentation was riddled with grammatical errors and included sentences or questions that did not make sense the way written. It doesn't appear there was a quality review of the materials. The presenter spoke extremely slow with exaggerated pauses. The entire presentation was extremely difficult to get through.
