Helping you apply IFRS

Insights into IFRS aims to ease the burden of applying IFRS to real transactions and arrangements, by providing in-depth and easily understandable guidance based on our practitioners’ experience of IFRS from around the world.


 “New standards, a surge in M&A activity, continued pressure for better business reporting… all of these factors make this a challenging (and interesting) time for the preparers of financial statements.”

Mark Vaessen, KPMG's global IFRS leader  


Organised by topic and reflecting IFRS in issue at 1 August 2015, Insights emphasises the application of IFRS in practice and explains the conclusions reached on many interpretative issues.

Insights into IFRS: An overviewprovides a high-level briefing for audit committees and boards.
