IFRS Reporting

View this page in: Türkçe

In 2005, all listed companies in EU member countries—and in many other countries—made the switch to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The good news: investors are now able to understand and compare financial statements from companies around the world. Result: lower cost capital more efficiently allocated. The not-so-good news: it's been a challenge getting through the IFRS conversion process and initial reporting period. Conversion to IFRS is much more than a technical accounting issue. IFRS may significantly affect any number of a company’s day-to-day operations or even impact the reported profitability of the business itself.

If this is your situation

  • You want to know the impact on reported performance measures and whether your profit is likely to be more volatile.
  • You need to ensure you have enough people with the right skills to complete the transition and embed the necessary changes within the company.
  • You are unsure of the additional data you are required to collect, whether your systems are able to capture that data, or if your controls are adequate.
  • You need to understand the changes affecting financial hedging and instruments, pensions, and tax as well as how the standards are likely to impact your industry.
  • You want to assess the tax implications of moving to IFRS.
  • You want to optimise all decisions related to IFRS conversion and ensure that any wider business opportunities are considered.
