Member and IMA members,
As you are aware IFMA has run a full day IFRS Update Seminar in September for
several years now. I am delighted to announce that not only are we running this
seminar again, on Wednesday, 11 September, but also that we are running a full
day IFRS Technical Workshop on Tuesday, 3 September, both at the Swissôtel
Metropole as usual. I enclose the invitations for both events and as demand is
likely to be high, we encourage you to sign up sooner rather than later.
The contents of the two seminars complement each other. The Technical Workshop
on 3 September, which will be run by Richard Stokes of GAAP Seminars, is a
hands-on seminar which focusses on IFRS pronouncements that are effective in
FY2013 – the revised consolidation standards, fair value measurement and
employee benefits, including pensions, and accounting. The workshop will be of
practical use to those involved in FY2013 closings. The IFRS Update Seminar on
11 September, to be run as in prior years by Professor Chris Nobes, provides a
broader view, covering not only changes that came into effect in 2013, but also
matters such as revenue recognition, hedging, leases, etc where pronouncements
are expected in 2013 that will impact future years; the update seminar will
also cover general recognition questions and foreign currency accounting
We are pleased
to offer IMA members the opportunity to enroll for these seminars at the price
of CHF 700 per seminar, which compares very well with the public price of CHF 800 and the
IFMA member price of CHF 650.
and pre-payment is required by Wednesday, 28 August 2013 if attending both
seminars; or 28 August and 5 September respectively for attendance at the
individual seminars. To reserve your place by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call
079 261 6534, mention that you are an IMA member to receive the discount.
We look forward to seeing you at one or both of these seminars.
