BDO’s IFRS Advisory department is pleased to announce the launch of its new Virtual Workshop series

Presented by BDO’s IFRS Advisory experts and using multiple practical case studies, these tailored virtual workshops will provide attendees with the tools and insights to assist in the preparation of financial statements for the upcoming financial reporting period, with a particular focus on areas of NZ IFRS that have been brought to the forefront as a result of COVID-19.

The four, two-hour sessions in this first series address the following topics:

  1. Accounting for loan re-negotiations, government stimulus measures and impairment testing
  2. Accounting for rent concessions, changes to share-based payments and subsequent events
  3. Impact of COVID-19 on revenue recognition, fair value measurement, provisions and going concern
  4. Corporate transactions (business combinations, step-acquisitions)


Further details including dates, pricing, and registration will be posted to BDO’s Accounting Standards Training page in the near future.

While this first series will be focusing on those entities with 31 March 2021 reporting dates (half-year and full year), entities with reporting dates at a later date in 2021 can pre-register their interest for future series to be subsequently rolled out.
