(PRWEB) July 12, 2012
More than 100 countries around the world have officially adopted International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the London-based International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). In Brazil, IFRS is being applied to the consolidated financial statements of banks and listed companies, but with certain amendments and differences. This is a complex matter, and can be confusing and difficult - according to the Grant Thornton International Business Report (IBR) 2012, some 56% of Brazilian companies have not yet completed their IFRS transition.
To help Brazilian companies with their reporting requirements, Grant Thornton - the fifth largest accounting firm in the country - is pleased to be collaborating with the UK-based IASeminars group to offer a broad range of IFRS and US GAAP training courses in Brazil. By working together, the experts from both companies will be able to assist clients with their questions on IFRS theory and application. More details about the courses can be found on the Grant Thornton and IASeminars websites.
