Course Description

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is a set of global standards for the preparation of public company financial statements. These accounting standards are developed by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). The objective behind the reforming move in the finance sector is to bring uniformity in the business standards so that a business can present its financial statements on the same basis as its foreign counterparts.

It is a good sign that India is among those 100 countries which are moving towards IFRS (International Financial Reporting standards) convergence with a view to bringing about uniformity in reporting systems globally, enabling businesses, finances and funds to access more opportunities as ICAI had decided to implement IFRS in India. The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has also announced its commitment to convergence to IFRS.

IFRS is useful for accounts and finance professionals working on intended to work in an environment requiring accounting and reporting using IFRS.

IFRS is a set of accounting standards, developed by International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).

The ministry of corporate affairs has made it mandatory in financial budget 2014, to do IFRS certification for all accounts and finance domain people.

Business affairs cannot be managed without qualified accountants who are called as Certified Public Accountants (CPA) in many countries. The American Institute of CPAs i.e. AICPA offers IFRS certification programs to prepare accountants for the globalized business world. The IFRS is a set of global standards which evolved under the aegis of International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). They have been designed to promote a global grammar for writing and maintaining company accounts that can be understood anywhere in the world.

IFRS Certification can be pursued by interested aspirants for the following reasons -

  • Globalization has created multi-national corporations which employ global rules and IFRS to maintain their books of accounts.
  • High-quality of accounting standards are inevitable when large sums of money are exchanged, and this requires professionals with necessary expertise, knowledge, and skills.
  • Small and Medium-sized businesses also utilize IFRS and the career opportunities are up for grabs for those with the requisite qualifications.
  • Financial information and statements have to be consistent, comprehensive, relevant, and verifiable. Trained and certified professionals are more reliable and they also receive higher salaries.

The United States based Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) differs from IFRS in a fundamental manner. IFRS is based on principles while GAAP is rule-based. In GAAP, written down inventories cannot be reversed while in IFRS reversal under specific criteria is allowed. GAAP research is based primarily on literature while IFRS relies more on a thorough review of pattern-based facts. IFRS and GAAP also differ in their treatment of intangible assets and inventory costs.

The focus of certification course in IFRS is on the following fundamental concepts -

  • Provision of an integrated and comprehensive curriculum for enhancing proficiency.
  • Assist the aspirants to thoroughly understand the IFRS framework with an emphasis on communication and explanation.
  • Comprehensive understanding of the accounting standards along with their practical application in a global scenario.
  • Principles of key standards in financial reporting and their correct applications.

The IFRS certification course is available for qualified accounting professionals with or without active practice. Professional accounts with CA and CPA can enroll and complete the curriculum for their certificates. Other accountancy practitioners can also enroll provided they have undergraduate accountancy degrees and relevant work experience at a fundamental level. Those with CA and CPA qualifications, but are presently inactive can also apply for this course.

The duration depends on the capabilities of the aspirant and the time he or she is willing to invest in completing the course work. The course can be completed if the candidates are enthusiastic and willing to commit between 40 to 60 hours approximately.

USA does not use IFRS but relies on its own GAAP while the Russian GAAP has started converging to IFRS.
