International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) has a fast and efficient solution to meet the needs of someone who wants to be a finance professional. DipIFR can help develop the knowledge of the working area.

The course is mandated in more than 100 countries worldwide. All listed companies in the European Union (EU) have to prepare consolidated company accounts that comply with IFRS. It also affects associates and subsidiaries of EU-listed companies.

Other countries such as Australia, Hong Kong and South Africa have already adopted IFRS or equivalents as their local Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). And many other countries around the world, including Nepal, are moving towards applying IFRS, which is having a significant impact on financial reporting.
