KPMG has extensive experience in applying Australian accounting standards and IFRS.

By adopting International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), Australia has taken an important step in delivering more transparent financial information for shareholders and regulators.

Australian accounting standards are based on IFRS. In a volatile financial environment the International Financial Reporting Standards have been severely stress tested.

While there has been some debate around certain standards, overall the transparency of financial results has been important to users in managing their way through the global financial crisis.

Of course, accounting standards continue to evolve and we are about to see another wave of new requirements. Understanding and keeping up with on-going revisions and amendments is an important responsibility for commercial entities.

Seeking professional advice will ensure you are well informed and prepared for the developments in accounting and reporting practice that are most relevant to you.
