IFRS and Business Consulting
We Can Help You
ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS
IF YOU WORK IN A COMPANY WITH FOREIGN ACTIVITIES,
THEN THE CHANCES ARE THAT YOU WORK WITH IFRS, TOO.
Often, the accounting could be complex, probably linking to complex processes.
One of the main “troubles” with IFRS is that it is principle-based, not rule-based and therefore companies often don’t know how to apply it, because there is no set of rules dictated and judgement is needed.
Furthermore, the standards can be unclear or too difficult to understand. This is natural, because IFRS aim to generalize and provide rules that capture as many economic situations as possible.
Finally, IFRS change frequently and accountants, analysts and other users have hard time to keep up, train themselves and implement the changes.
But, me and my team can help.
