You Can’t Live Without It: Essential IFRS Update 2022

There are certain things you can’t live without – air, water, food… And if you are an accountant, annual accounting update training! For accountants, it is crucial to stay abreast of current developments from standard setters and regulatory agencies. Our “Essential IFRS Update for 2022” will fulfil that fundamental training need providing you with knowledge on new standards from the IASB, as well as practice issues from the IFRIC and ESMA.

This course includes a vital dose of interactivity, combined with indispensable application-based examples. The course fulfils that requisite training need for both professionals working at accounting firms responsible for auditing financial statements in accordance with IFRS, and accountants working at companies who apply IFRS. Let’s take a closer look.

The Details

Program Description

We always start our annual update courses with a look at recent hot topics to get learners in the mood for IFRS before we jump into new pronouncements. It’s interactive and application-based, with plenty of examples to illustrate key learning points. This year our focus is on inflation, war and ESG. Who’s down with ESG? Yeah, you know me.

Next up, accounting updates from the IASB. They are a necessary evil, but that doesn’t mean they have to be mind-numbingly boring! Experience the GAAP Dynamics difference in this section where we discuss new standards and amendments from the IASB that are effective in 2022. Once we’ve covered what you really need to know for this year, we will focus on new standards and amendments that are effective in 2023 and beyond. Interestingly, the IASB hasn’t issued any big, comprehensive new standards since the last wave which included financial instruments, revenue recognition and leases, all of which are now effective. The focus recently has been on smaller amendments that are meant to clarify, and even simplify, the application of IFRS. This year’s update covers a wide variety of topics from onerous contracts to classification of liabilities as current or non-current.

To round out the course, we’ll spend some time looking at a variety of interesting practice issues including ones that are the focus of recent IFRIC agenda decisions and others that are the result of regulatory reviews of financial statements. You can learn a lot from the mistakes of others!
