IFRS is a continuously evolving GAAP and so is Ind AS, drawing its dynamism from IFRS. In the recent past, GAAPs have seen significant new changes, with the coming of IFRS 9 and IFRS 15, which impacted most companies’ financial statements in ways that mattered. IFRS 16 and IFRS 17 are all set to impact financial statements again in the near future.
Our team of professionals tracks development in accounting standards from the exposure draft stages and prepares for its implementation long before they are applicable. We help companies prepare for these new accounting changes and implement them.
Key changes due to new accounting standards (IFRS 9, IFRS 15, ASC 606, IFRS 16, Ind AS 115, Ind AS 116)

- Expected credit losses – a fresh approach to financial asset impairment
- Revenue recognition guidance – Global alignment of revenue recognition standard, brought in the 5-step model, which among other things completely changed the way real estate companies in India accounted for their revenue
