2019 IFRS update event

IFRS Annual update event

KPMG in Kuwait is pleased to announce its update event on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Get the latest updates from the world of IFRS with in-depth analysis of the implications on your business

As the regulatory landscape becomes increasingly stringent, it is critical for finance professionals to keep pace with evolving reporting standards. This seminar will provide you with valuable technical interpretations, insights and strategies to overcome real-world challenges in applying the standards.

We will draw upon lessons from the past, analyzing the occasional difficulties of applying IFRS 15 (Revenues from Contracts with Customers) and IFRS 16 (Leases).

We will examine present circumstances, including the latest IFRIC interpretations of current IFRS standards 9 (Financial instruments), 15, 16, and 23 (Borrowing costs), and IAS 21 (The effect of changes in foreign exchange rates).

Finally, we will discuss anticipated developments in accounting, including the changing face of the statement of profit or loss, the increasing importance of non-GAAP measures, and the updated treatment of intangible assets and business combinations.
