Diploma in IFRS

ACCA Diploma in IFRS builds on the technical and practical knowledge acquired from recognized country-specific accountancy qualifications or relevant work experience. The IFRS syllabus introduces the candidate to the wider international framework of accounting and the system of standard-setting. This course concentrates on the application of conceptual and technical financial reporting knowledge that candidates have already obtained to the specific requirements of financial reporting under international financial reporting standards.

Over 113 countries require or permit the use of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for publicly-traded companies. All listed companies in the European Union (EU) have to prepare consolidated company accounts that comply with IFRS. It also affects associates and subsidiaries of EU-listed companies. Other countries such as Australia, Hong Kong, and South Africa have already adopted IFRS or equivalents as their local Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). And many other countries around the world, including India, are moving towards applying IFRS, which is having a significant impact on financial reporting.

The DIP in IFRS provides essential international financial reporting knowledge and principles that will prepare candidates for the increasingly global market place and keep them abreast of international developments and how they might apply to companies and businesses.
