The intense pressure to make U.S. companies use IFRS grows stronger every day.  Eventually, U.S. managers and investors must master a new language to use in preparing and analyzing financial reports.

If you and your company want to prepare for this change, this brisk-paced Webcast is ideal for you. In just 60 minutes, you’ll discover what you have to learn and why it’s critically important.

What You Will Learn

You’ll understand the impact of using IFRS in four key areas:

• The format of the financial statements
• Major differences in recording transactions
• Increased requirements for systems support and data tracking
• Changed and increased disclosure requirements

The nature of the political pressure and the U.S. response will also be discussed.

This Webcast is essential for every financial manager and executive responsible for (or interested in) creating financial statements—as well as those charged with evaluating financial statements.

While attending the Webcast is FREE, reservations are required.
