This is a two-in-one three-day course for delegates who want to be on the edge of new developments in financial reporting.

The course will also touch on related topics such as Fair value measurement, Foreign exchange, Earnings per share, Insurance, Leases. Share-based payments, Financial Reporting, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and Sustainability Reporting.
The treatment and reporting on financial instruments changed several times over the past two decades and the new developments of IFRS 9 Financial Instruments is no exception. The new classifications, measurement, hedging requirements and impairment testing in particular changed significantly. Related standards on IFRS 13 Fair value measurement, IAS 21 Foreign exchange, IAS 32 Presentation of financial Instruments, IFRS 2 Share-based payments, IFRS 16 Leases and IFRS 17 Insurance will also demand new insights from all accounting professionals.
Integrated reporting changed the face of corporate reporting in the world. Financial reporting will always be part of it, but the audience of corporate reports broadened the scope of corporate reporting. Financial information should be complemented by disclosures on the business model, performance, strategy and future outlook of an organization. All the stakeholders of an organization should be incorporated as “users” and therefore the disclosures should not only be on financial issues but rather also on non-financial issues.
