The Maryland Association of CPAs is collaborating with IASeminars to jointly offer a range of International Financial Reporting Standards training programs.

If the Securities and Exchange Commission allows U.S. public companies to begin using IFRS to preparers and file financial statements, the transition would affect both preparers and users of U.S. financial statements. Many international companies with a presence in the United States already use IFRS, which is required or permitted in more than 120 other countries around the world.

IASeminars offers over 100 different international accounting topics in some 30 cities around the world, including Abu Dhabi, Baltimore, Chicago, Johannesburg, London, New York, Sao Paulo, Toronto and Zurich, among others. By collaborating with IASeminars, the MACPA will offer its nearly 10,000 members and other stakeholders additional professional development opportunities on a topic that is expected to attract considerable future interest.

To bring an IASeminars IFRS program to your firm or company, contact Marybeth Drusano of MACPA at (443) 632.2317 or by email at
