This newsletter looks at IFRS and regulatory matters affecting accounting for banks.
The Bank Statement is KPMG’s quarterly banking newsletter.
It provides updates on IFRS developments that directly impact banks, and considers the potential accounting implications of regulatory requirements.
And visit our IFRS for Banks and IFRS – Financial instruments pages for more on these and other related developments.
