Do you know how to apply the IFRS for SMEs Standard in the following circumstances: BEE transactions, SMEs under liquidation or under business rescue, contingent liabilities, intangible assets, and deferred tax?

Overview   

Do you know how to apply the IFRS for SMEs Standard in the following circumstances: BEE transactions, SMEs under liquidation or under business rescue, contingent liabilities, intangible assets, and deferred tax? It's not so easy as it looks and you could end up in trouble with CIPC and SARS if your presentation and disclosure is found to be faulty.  

The IASB tweaked and amended the Standard for the first time since it was published in 2015, with a handful of critical amendments that become effective for years beginning on or after 1 January 2017. It is vital that every accounting and auditing practitioner gets up-to-speed with the Standard including all its amendments.  

Cognisant of this, we have asked Caryn Maitland CA(SA) to use her practice experience and examples to provide a webinar that takes you back to basics while updating you on amendments to the Standard.
