Here, you’ll find resources that cover the technical accounting and reporting topics of interest to CFOs, financial management and the financial reporting community.

Compliance. Before – and after – the IPO

Helping clients thrive in the global business environment  

For companies based in the U.S., financial reporting in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) can be a daunting and unfamiliar process. Companies applying IFRS for the first time are faced with numerous initial adoption choices and judgements.
