Swiss GAAP FER Event - Zurich

Get involved in shaping the future of financial reporting by participating in industry-specific workshops.

30 August 2017, 1:00PM - 5:15PM, CET Zurich, Switzerland


This year’s KPMG Swiss GAAP FER Event will be slightly different: it will begin with a panel discussion followed up with industry-specific workshops where we will discuss tricky implementation issues on how the standard is to be applied to in your industry. To start off, Prof. Dr. Reto Eberle, Audit Partner KPMG, will hold a panel discussion with several well-informed persons on the topic of the future of financial reporting from their perspectives.

After this, you will have the possibility to participate in a workshop with other industry peers, led by a KPMG expert:

  • Trade and commercial companies will discuss with Dr. Silvan Loser and Prof. Dr. Reto Eberle the practical issues arising on the consolidated financial statements under FER 30 (purchase price allocation and earn-out clauses), highlight the different aspects of hedge accounting under FER 27 and take some questions on further expert recommendations.
  • Increasingly, donors to non-profit organizations demand information on the efficient and effective use of the funds provided. As this trend will increase in the medium term, measuring effectiveness is vital for a successful organization. Together with a ZEWO manager, we will show you why effectiveness must be measured and which methods are available. Reto Kaufmann will also highlight current issues relevant to donations.
  • Swiss GAAP FER has established itself as the standard of choice for hospitals and clinics. Marc Dominic Widmer and Reto Käser will discuss the current tendencies (among other things, how to handle new disclosure requirements) and specific questions (also in regard to funds, inventories and fixed asset accounting).
