IFRS Advisory Services in Dubai

IFRS Advisory Services in Dubai, UAE

IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) or International Accounting Standards play a critical role in financial reporting because countries all over the world use them for financial statement preparation and presentation. The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are a globally adopted accounting standard that makes corporate accounts more clear and comparable. The implementation of IFRS standards will aid organisations in simplifying and improving their accounting operations.

The IASB was established in order to meet the demands of new economic difficulties, to correct probable errors, and to improve the presentation of financial statements from time to time. Either create new International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) or update existing ones. Alternatively, existing standards could be reissued with appropriate changes. The date from which the newly issued or reissued IFRS shall be considered in the financial statements shall always be specified.

The impact of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) on revenue, expenses, assets, and liabilities to an entity must be evaluated in order to understand the impact on – recognition, measurement, and disclosure on revenue, expenses, assets, and liabilities to an entity when a new standard or revision to existing standards is implemented.

The growing complexity of financial reporting, as well as the rapid rate of change, has resulted in a considerable increase in demand for high-level accounting guidance from a specialist. Our knowledgeable and efficient advice staff will assist firms in adopting and implementing IFRS standards with ease.

Impact analysis of adoption and implementation of new/revised IFRS standards.
One of the IFRS advisory services we offer is IFRS impact assessment. When a new or revised accounting standard is introduced in a business on a certain date, an IFRS impact assessment is performed. Because of a change in measurement of the item, the value disclosed in the financial statements may need to be revised when compared to those generally provided under existing practise. In some circumstances, the impact will be limited to the information presented in the financial statement, rather than the financial data themselves.

Why is it crucial to commence an IFRS impact assessment?

Regardless of whether the impact is on the amount to be recognised or measured, or on the disclosure requirements, it is critical to assess the impact of IFRS implementation before compiling financial statements to present to stakeholders and/or the public. Before the financial year ends, management will have a good notion of the impact of any new or updated IFRS. Some of the important IFRSs that have recently been issued/revised or are in the process of being released, and whose impact on financial statements may be material for entities, are listed below:

Impact analysis of adoption and implementation
