IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts will soon be a reality and many companies will be spending this summer working intensively to build their IFRS 17 opening balance sheet.

 To help you navigate this exercise with greater confidence, KPMG is hosting a webcast “The survival guide to the IFRS 17 opening balance sheet” to share insights from KPMG professionals around the world. What areas of the IFRS 17 transition do you need to know about? How can you best plan for the interaction with your auditors? What are the tax considerations specific to this one-time exercise and how can you successfully embed the transition from project mode to going live? 

With one week to go until the event, please register and share with your clients to answer those questions and tackle the new world of IFRS 17 with confidence.
