IFRS 15 and 16 Seminar 2018 - Workshop

My Offerings


Are you ready for the IFRS changes? Attend this essential seminar to understand the implications. Both IFRS 15 and 16 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 facilitator 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:

  • Recognition and measurement exemption for the lessee
  • How to account for leases
  • Lessee accounting
  • Lessor accounting
  • Sales and leaseback transactions
  • Transitions
