The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are accounting standards developed by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), an independent not-for-profit organisation.
The IFRS provide a global framework for how public companies prepare and disclose their financial statements, giving general guidance for preparing financial statements rather than setting rules for industry-specific reporting.
Adopting a single set of worldwide standards simplifies accounting procedures by allowing one reporting language throughout. A single standard also provides investors and auditors with a cohesive view of finances.
Our financial reporting advisory team can guide you through this framework to ensure you are compliant and meet the international standards required; this is especially useful for large companies with subsidiaries in multiple countries.
