ACCA, Deloitte Ghana launch IFRS initiative

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Deloitte Ghana have signed a partnership to promote the use of IFRS among Ghana’s financial professionals.

As part of the initiative ACCA and Deloitte have designed a Diploma in International Financial Reporting (DipIFR) and will offer accountants master classes to prepare the exams leading to the award.

“It is vital that finance professionals in Ghana are able to master IFRS since it now required or permitted in all major economies,” ACCA head of Ghana Norman Williams said.

According to ACCA, more than 12 countries in sub-Saharan Africa have already adopted IFRS as their local GAAP.

The master classes will start on 15August in preparation for exams in December 2012 and June 2013.
