Course Objective:

There has been increasing pressure for governments around the world to be more accountable for their public budgets with governments and to produce accurate, meaningful and transparent financial statements. International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) enable public entities to show clear accrual accounting and budgeting techniques and demonstrate results-based monitoring and reporting.

This workshop will provide the comprehensive understanding of applying IPSAS from the IASB’s IFRS standards to the framework of public bodies and enable delegates to increase transparency and develop a better system of performance/results measurement of costs and cost budgets. Though the use of case studies of all the major topics, delegates will gain a working knowledge of how to apply and adopt IPSAS to their organisation. We will conduct discussions on how to overcome the challenges faced by other entities in implementing IPSAS.

Who should attend

This course is highly beneficial to delegates who have a good knowledge of Accounting and finance principles and who are looking for best practice and structured ways of achieving leading edge strategic delivery both in planning and implementation of IPSAS.
