With the Financial Reporting Standards becoming more complex in addressing the increasingly complex business environments and transactions, there are inevitably companies which applied these standards in ways that are considered to be inadequate or incorrect.

This programme is designed specifically for Accountants involved in financial statements preparation and for Auditors who are auditing financial statements. Real life examples will be illustrated to help you avoid making the common errors.

Programme Outline

In addition to addressing the key judgment areas that commonly cause errors in application, we will also be covering the actual errors made by companies that affect the fair representation of financial statements: 

  • Application of consolidation standards in determining the existence of control
  • The determination of goodwill
  • The impairment analysis of goodwill
  • The determination of net assets acquired in business combination
  • Classification of revenue
  • Cash flow statement errors
  • Fair value of property
  • Construction contract – percentage of completion determination
  • The impairment of long-lived assets
  • Going concern assumption
  • Disclosure of significant management’s judgments and estimates 

This workshop qualifies for 7.0 CPE hours in Financial Reporting Standards and Pronouncements (Category 1).
