Meeting IFRS Compliance Requirements

The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are a core set of accounting standards that are being adopted by countries around the world. The globalization of business and finance has created the need for a common set of accounting standards to be used by all countries as a way to increase the efficiency of cross-border transaction handling and accountability. The need to implement IFRS has highlighted the utility of BPM technology as the increasing number of compliance initiatives poses numerous challenges for companies of all sizes. The high cost of non-compliance is a risk that companies cannot afford to take. With BPM technology, compliance initiatives become ingrained in every company process, leaving no room for error.

With backing from the SEC, the International Organization of Securities Commissions, and the International Accounting Standards Board, IFRS will soon be a mandatory requirement for businesses in every country. To date, more than 12,000 companies in over 100 countries have adopted IFRS.

Beyond Financial Reporting

Although only a financial reporting standard, IFRS will surely affect every aspect of your company. As stated by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, “[IFRS]… will have an impact far beyond just financial reports. It will affect almost every aspect of a […] company’s operations, everything from its information technology systems, to its tax reporting requirements, to the way it tracks stock-based compensation.”

The EPC will highlight every possible process component that will be affected by the implementation of IFRS, ensuring a proactive solution to change.
