Since the approval of the stable platform of the New Zealand equivalents to International Financial Reporting Standards (NZ IFRS), the pace of technical accounting change has become profound. The next wave of new standards will take effect from 2013 and will affect areas such as consolidated financial statements, joint arrangements, and fair value measurement.
At Deloitte we have the expertise to help you navigate the way forward. Our audit and technical accounting professionals provide assurance and advisory services to clients in a wide range of industries and and up-to-date advice on the latest technical accounting issues that affect organisations. We have also developed useful resources and tools to assist you in achieving compliance with today’s complex and rapidly changing financial reporting requirements.

The IASB’s current agenda includes a number of projects that will significantly impact on financial statements including projects on Financial Instruments, Leases, and Revenue. Having issued a significant number of new and revised Standards and Interpretations over the past few years, the IASB is also in the process of developing its future work programme.
