The course will help you map and apply IFRSs to questions, practice questions of variety of scenarios using comprehensive question bank, engaging lectures and interactive assessments.

The syllabus for Advanced Accounting and Financial Reporting, assumes knowledge acquired at the Intermediate and Fundamental levels including the core technical capabilities to prepare and analyse financial reports for single and combined entities. The syllabus requires students to examine corporate reporting from a number of perspectives, not only from the point of view of the preparer of corporate reports, but also from the perspective of a variety of different stakeholders such as finance providers. The syllabus further requires the assessment and evaluation of the reporting decisions made by management and their implications for a range of stakeholders and entities. It also explores the professional and ethical responsibilities of the accountant to these stakeholders.

The subject matter of the syllabus requires students to have a cohesive understanding of the IASB’s Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting and to use the Framework as a basis for judgement in applying International Financial Reporting Standards in corporate reports. The syllabus considers both the principles and practices of IFRS and uses these principles as a basis for the preparation of the financial statements of single entities and groups.
