IFRS update sessions

Tailored in-house IFRS update workshops

Your specific needs and interests are important to us. Therefore, we can organize tailored IFRS training sessions in which we clarify any of the IFRS standards in half or full-day sessions. Together we will develop a tailored training program from basic topics to IFRS update sessions and more advanced or industry-specific topics covering aspects you consider to be most relevant to your business.

These workshops can be organized at your premises, at any one of our KPMG offices or via a webinar on a convenient date. They can be conducted in English or in Dutch.
