Course Overview

IPSAS is being introduced in almost every country in the world. IFRS having replaced IAS is now becoming the world standard, but in many ways was not specific enough to the needs of the Public Sector. The United Nations and World Bank coming to this realisation have favoured IPSAS which is a modified form of IFRS tailored to the Public Sector. The challenges of implementation are varied and complex. However, the risks associated with non-compliance are very real.

This course will help our clients to assist not only in meeting the challenges of introducing IPSAS, but also to secure the benefits of improved financial management to help secure organisational objectives and goals of each public service organisation.

Donor organisations, foreign Governments, aid agencies, free trade associations, banks and financial institutions increasingly require projects to be applied and accounted for to modern standards, either GAAP,IAS and IFRS including IPSAS. This enables multi-national organisations to make comparisons between projects wherever in the world they happen, irrespective of jurisdiction, culture, language and ethnicity. IPSAS is becoming and will become the World standard for Public Sector entities.
