The biggest changes in IFRS accounting for more than a decade come into effect in January 2018, the new standards on revenue and financial instruments, followed a year later by the new leases standard.
Therefore regulators and investors are expecting high-quality implementation supported by progressively more quantitative disclosure as the effective dates approach. The implications can be pervasive – impacting everything from your KPIs to systems and processes.
Based on KPMG member firms’ experience of applying IFRS around the world, Insights into IFRS contains invaluable practical guidance, whether you need to understand an accounting treatment or navigate the challenges of the new standards on revenue and financial instruments.
