Course IFRS Advanced

Your financial reporting less complex and costly with IFRS

Due to the ever-increasing demand for transparency and comparability of the annual accounts of listed organisations, the work of financial managers, administrators and accountants is becoming increasingly important, but also more complex. New regulations are regularly introduced with which organisations that report according to the IFRS standards must comply. These International Finance Reporting Standards (IFRS) have been the accounting standard for the annual reports of listed companies since 2005.

The latest generation of IFRS standards is aimed at, among other things:
  • reduce the complexity of financial reporting
  • to prevent misuse of financial reporting.
  • reduce the cost of financial reporting.
Have you been working with IFRS for some time now and would you like to deepen your knowledge, understanding and analytical skills? And would you like to learn more about the new standards of recent and future years, such as IFRS 17? And its application in your daily practice? Sign up for Learnit's IFRS Advanced training.


In Learnit's four-day IFRS Advanced course, you will learn more about the basic aspects of reporting in accordance with IFRS. And you will work on specific, more complex subjects related to international accounting standards (IAS). Furthermore, you will become acquainted with more advanced terminology, concepts and applications of IFRS.

Using examples from daily practice, you will learn about the impact of the new IFRS standards on your organisation. A number of practical calculation models and IFRS checklists will help you to make your financial statements transparent and compliant with the very latest IFRS regulations. In addition, there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions during the course days.
