Primary accounting areas

IFRS is undergoing constant change. Accordingly, companies may face challenges in meeting the standards, as implementing new financial reporting practices can be burdensome and require significant changes to current processes. At KPMG we are adept at cutting through complexity, giving you a clear and concise understanding of what you need to keep in mind to ensure compliance. We can advise you on the potential effects of revised IFRS and develop suitable, practical solutions.

If you have operations in the united states, compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley act is mandatory.  The Act requires that all listed companies set up internal controls over their financial reporting and regularly test and verify the reliability of these controls. In addition, executives will be held personally accountable for unreliable controls and instances of fraud. 

Accordingly, Danish companies aiming towards listing in the US should take special note of all requirements. Further, compliance with the act is recommended even though US listing is not the present agenda, as it promotes stronger governance and a high degree of trust among stakeholders. 

Over the years, the Danish Financial Statements Act has been amended on several occasions. At KPMG we strive to supply our clients with the most recent advisory services to ensure that your annual reports comply with all technical accounting practices, e.g. disclosure requirements, recognition and measurement criteria, and industry-specific regulations.
