Deloitte’s Arabic Summary of International Public Sector Accounting Standards (Arabic IPSAS)
The Certificate in International Public Sector Accounting Standards in Arabic (Cert IPSAS in Arabic) has been specifically developed as a collaboration between ACCA and Deloitte for Arabic speaking and local finance professionals to help you meet the challenges of implementing IPSAS.
Many countries choose to adopt international accounting standards when converting to accrual accounting, IPSAS being the the most popular. Accrual IPSAS are based on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), where the requirements of these standards are applicable to the public sector, and expand on them to tackle public sector-specific financial reporting issues. More and more countries are seeking to learn from each other’s experiences and this becomes easier when common international accounting standards are being followed.
In the context of the 22 Arab League member states, at least five Arab central governments officially announced their implementation of accrual accounting IPSAS, with many more currently studying the conversion. To support these efforts, the availability of an Arabic language summary of IPSAS is intended to be a catalyst for further communication, learning and improvement.
