IFRS Services at Deloitte

IFRS experts at your service

IFRS services at Deloitte Luxembourg offers a range of tailored services, including IFRS consulting, to assist your company with IFRS issues and tasks you face.

Accounting teams face two main difficulties, the first is the shortening of deadlines and secondly, the management of multi-GAAPs accounting. For this reason, more and more companies make the choice to use the IFRS accounting system and financial statement to rationalize the reporting standards they use.

Migrating to IFRS requires a high involvement of your team and some additional technical knowledge in regards to specific requirements for accounting or disclosures purposes.

The aim of our IFRS consulting services is to provide a tailored service for our clients in order to accompany them in the transition to IFRS. Our experienced and specialized team is composed of experts in each industry and each standard. The team includes specialists in areas such as accounting, tax, regulatory capital, processes, controls and systems.
