International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)

Is your understanding of IFRS fully joined up? RSM can guide you through the business implications of IFRS.

Over 100 countries now use International Financial Reporting Standards, a number that is set to rise to around 150 countries over the next five years. If you are an ambitious, internationally-active growing organisation with plans to expand into overseas markets, you need precise, tailored advice on IFRS.

International expansion plans often involve cross-border acquisitions or joint ventures abroad, raising international debt finance, developing relationships with private equity houses or raising capital from the equity markets, whether at home or abroad. Such transactions are increasingly likely to call for a detailed understanding of IFRS.
