IFRS is increasingly being viewed as the single set of high-quality accounting standards for global capital market participants, with over 100 countries currently reporting under IFRS. Financial reporting in India using IFRS, as proposed by ICAI, would be applicable for accounting periods beginning on or after April 1, 2011, which effectively would require companies to transition as at April 1, 2010. The biggest challenge for India will be in ensuring that adoption of IFRS leads to more consistency as opposed to more divergence in financial statements of comparable companies.

To keep you abreast of developments in IFRS and discuss challenges and approaches associated with the adoption of IFRS, we ha ve organized this workshop cum panel discussion with distinguished industry leaders and experts from Grant Thornton International and Grant Thornton India .
