Dusit Thani Manila


The growing global acceptance of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as a basis for the preparation of financial statements of large and medium sized entities creates a need for an increasing group of professionals to gain knowledge and experience of these standards.

Even those with a basic understanding of IFRS are required to constantly update their knowledge because of the fast evolution of these standards and the growing experience that practitioners require.

As of 2005, approximately 9000 listed European companies transferred to IFRS reporting. Australia, Canada, China, India, Japan, Malaysia, Russia, South Korea and many other countries are adopting IFRS or have plans to converge their national standards with IFRS.


This two-day course has been designed to provide participants with comprehensive understanding of the IFRS 9 requirements in relation to Financial Instruments.
