Kaufman, Rossin & Co., recently announced it is partnering with IASeminars, a provider of training courses on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), to help financial professionals and businesses prepare for the adoption of international standards.
Many countries are quickly moving to IFRS as global markets become increasingly integrated. Public companies in the European Union already use IFRS, and those in Canada will do so beginning in 2011. Recently, the Securities and Exchange Commission stated that IFRS will likely be incorporated into the U.S. financial reporting system over the next five years. Many small and medium-sized businesses also are considering adopting IFRS as an alternative to U.S. GAAP, following the recent issuance of an international standard in this area.
As a result of the IASeminars partnership, more than 100 public courses on IFRS, as well as customized on-site courses, will be offered in both English and Spanish. An extensive range of information will be covered including IFRS implementation, specialized industry issues, and the differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP.
With its headquarters in Miami, Kaufman, Rossin has an ideal geographic location that will enable these IFRS courses to appeal to a global audience.
"Miami is an international trade center, making this a perfect place for finance professionals from South and Central America, the Caribbean and other locations to receive this invaluable training," said Blain Heckaman, an audit principal with Kaufman, Rossin. "For U.S. professionals, Miami also remains one of the most desirable training locations."
Upcoming courses are being offered in June, November, and December. More information is available at www.iaseminars.com.
