Financial Reporting

The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are a set of accounting standards developed by the International Accounting Standards Board, or IASB, an independent, not-for-profit organisation.

The IFRS provides a global framework for how public companies prepare and disclose their financial statements, giving general guidance for the preparation of financial statements, rather than setting rules for industry-specific reporting.

Adopting a single set of world-wide standards simplifies accounting procedures by allowing the use of one reporting language throughout. A single standard also provides investors and auditors with a cohesive view of finances.

Our audit and assurance team are able to guide you through this framework, to make your company compliant and meeting with the international standards required; this is especially useful for large companies with subsidiaries in multiple countries.

Get in touch to discuss how we can help get your accounting standards in line.

Howard Lewis

Partner

Links with the shipping industry forged early in Howard’s career and which continue today led to his interest in overseas businesses. For the last 20 years he has led the firm’s international development group and his connections with a multitude of advisors including members of Baker Tilly International, around the world, ensures that companies based overseas and trading in the UK and the firm’s clients taking their first steps into new markets are actively assisted. 

The international business development group links clients from the UK with Baker Tilly members throughout the world and clients referred from overseas are connected to the sector, service line and location that can most efficiently handle their affairs.

Our clients arriving in the UK from overseas are headquartered in all parts of the world but our highest concentrations have traditionally been the USA, Germany, Netherlands, Italy and Australia as well as from the original links with shipping, Greece. Activities undertaken are widespread covering all types of products and services as well as retail, distribution, wholesale and manufacturing. 

Having worked in the City of London for most of his career he is a Freeman and this demonstrates his continued and long term interest in the City. Howard is married to Leonie, the CEO of a communal volunteer organisation and both of them are actively involved in their local community and the promotion of inter faith relationships throughout London.
