Why you must attend?

With more and more countries adopting the IFRS as their accounting standards (almost over 125 countries) and also due to regular revisions and replacement of existing standards & principles, you must continue to develop your conceptual and practical understanding of IFRSs. If you intend to use IFRS for the first time then you must have the required knowledge and skills to implement the IFRSs, be able to understand how this transition affects company’s reporting, and what it means going forward. If you have already implemented IFRS even then you need to make sure that you continue to invest your time in learning and keep your self-updated with further changes to the IFRSs.
