Clarity in financial reporting
Financial reporting is changing rapidly. Our Accounting Technical team will keep you up-to-date with our newsletters.
Accounting standards are changing rapidly and the need to be informed has never been greater. This is especially true with the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB) publishing major new standards that are to be applied in the near future.
Our Accounting Technical team produces regular Clarity newsletters to keep clients up to date with announcements, emerging issues and any uncertainties in financial reporting interpretation. New subscribers can register to be added to our distribution list. Subscribers receive notification of new newsletters as they are published.
You can also access our IAS Plus website – recognised as the premier International Finance Reporting Standards (IFRS) resource on the web.
