What You Learn from the ... CIMA Financial Reporting Mastercourses: Sonali Bricola, Head of Financial Reporting Courses for Professional Development at BPP, Specialising in IFRS and UK GAAP


There is currently a great deal of activity in the evolution of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). In its work towards converging IFRS and US GAAP, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has previously said that it will not release more than four exposure drafts per quarter, but that is still a lot of exposure drafts for finance professionals to get to grips with. As a result, even if you think that you are up to speed with IFRS today, your present knowledge will become out of date within a few short months. Indeed, in May and June alone, the IASB issued five new standards and amended two.

All of our IFRS courses are also available for delivery in-house, and can be tailored to the needs of a particular company's finance team. Here are some of the key courses on offer.
