IFRS 15 and 16 Seminar 2018 - Workshop

Are you ready for the IFRS changes? Attend this essential seminar to access our experts and their insights into the implications. Both will have a significant impact and may require an overhaul of the processes used to produce the required financial information.

Now is your chance to prepare for transition. Attend this seminar and receive:

  • A full set of course notes
  • AASB and IFRS fact sheets
  • A hot lunch
  • Valuable networking time with facilitators and peers

The new rules of IFRS 15 are likely to have a significant impact on a wide range of industries which will need to prepare for its implementation. We will cover the five step process of revenue recognition and consider the areas which are likely to have the most impact. We will consider non-financial impacts of the standard and changes which may be required throughout your business.

Key topics:

  • Five step process of revenue recognition
  • Revenue for NFP entities
  • Contract costs
  • Business implications

Do you lease any office space, or buildings? What about retail space or shops? Do you have any other operating leases over property or equipment? If so, whether you are in the private or public sector, profit or not-for-profit sector, then you will be affected by the new standards for IFRS16.

Key topics:

  • How you will be affected by putting operating leases on balance sheet
  • Why this is a different way of accounting to what most people are used to
  • Some unexpected effects on your financial statements and results
  • Why many organisations do not have the necessary information to apply the standard readily at hand
  • Why the accounting will be difficult to audit
  • Why the new standard will not just be an end of year spreadsheet exercise

Learning objectives

  • Understand the basic accounting for the new standards
  • Describe the effects of the new standards on financial statements
  • Understand why monthly accounting and reconciliations may be required
  • Interpret systems changes that will be required
  • Explain changes to internal controls that will be required
