This unique distance learning course on IFRS is designed to provide you with a comprehensive treatment of the major IFRS standards. Following an introductory, ‘scene-setting’ Unit 1, and in a departure from the standard-by-standard procedure adopted by many courses, this course applies its own take on the principle of ‘substance-over-form’ by grouping separate standards together, according to the natural economic affinity of their subject matter. For example, Unit 2 considers tangible assets and transactions in (tangible) goods, whilst Unit 3 focuses on intangible assets and transactions in services. Similarly, Unit 6 brings together the two topics which share a common exposure to extreme long-term uncertainty: post-retirement employment benefits, and provisions and contingent assets and liabilities.
