Support for the Implementation of IFRS

Over 101 countries have already adopted IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards), including 14 of the G20 countries with the remaining 6 permitting or requiring IFRS to be used in certain circumstances or working towards IFRS convergence . In Japan, IFRS can be voluntarily adopted by listed companies that meet certain criteria, for fiscal years ending on or after 31 March 2010. A new scheme of cooperative relationships between the IASB (International Accounting Standards Board) and national accounting standards-setting bodies has been launched, and the IFRS Foundation opened its first satellite office, the Asia-Oceania regional office in Tokyo in October 2012.

Applying IFRS for the first time can have a large impact on the numbers a company presents in its financial statements and can also have a significant impact on the company's financial reporting processes, internal controls, information systems, tax and finance systems in addition to the changes in the accounting standards themselves.
Our accounting professionals have extensive experience and knowledge relating to IFRS implementation and can provide client-oriented services for IFRS implementation projects and ensure close communication with clients throughout the process.
