Swiss GAAP FER Event - Zurich

Join us at our annual event and hear the latest news on the accounting standard and take part in the industry-specific workshops.

29 August 2018, 1:00PM - 5:15PM, CET Zurich, Switzerland


At this year’s Swiss GAAP FER, Professor Reto Eberle (Ph.D.), Audit Partner KPMG, will inform on the ongoing projects of the FER commission. Next, Heiko Petry will present how blockchain technology has affected financial reporting and the role of the CFO.

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

  • For companies from industry and trade, Dr. Silvan Loser and Prof. Reto Eberle will address practical questions on the cash flow statement in accordance with FER 4 and discuss selected application questions on further technical recommendations.
  • Based on experience as auditors of non-profit organizations and on publicly available annual financial statements, Reto Kaufmann identifies possible solutions to frequently occurring issues.
  • Companies in the healthcare sector continue to face major challenges, also in connection with Swiss GAAP FER. In the workshop hospitals and clinics under the direction of Reto Käser and Ronny Heer, current developments in the industry (e.g. in connection with new construction projects) and the associated challenges with regard to accounting and reporting will be discussed in a practical manner.
  • The FER Commission adopted the revised technical recommendation "Financial Reporting of Insurance Companies" on 12 June 2018 and entered it into force on 1 January 2021. Hieronymus T. Dormann and Oliver Windhör will present the most important changes and discuss the resulting need for action.

The event will be held in German.
