Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) Gold Approved Learning Provider

KPMG in India’s Accounting Advisory Services and KPMG Learning Academy are pleased to announce their Batch 25 for training. The course is designed to prepare participants with the latest international accounting practices.

About the programme

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), is rapidly becoming a benchmark for the accounting world.

With a growing number of countries opting for IFRS, the numbers of finance professionals with qualification in IFRS is increasing globally.

The Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS), notified in 2014, have been converged with IFRS, which marked a paradigm shift in the regulatory and reporting landscape for companies in India.

Diploma in IFRS (Diploma IFRS) from the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants is one such qualification which can provide a detailed conceptual insight into IFRS. A diploma from ACCA (U.K.) is widely recognised in India and around the world.

Diploma IFRS is useful for finance professionals working or intending to work in an environment requiring accounting and reporting using IFRS/ Ind AS. Diploma IFRS is designed to develop an individual’s knowledge of IFRS, providing an understanding of the concepts and principles which underpin them and their application in the international marketplace, thereby helping professionals prepare for work in the IFRS environment.
