Finance teams must provide information to meet the developing needs and expectations of a variety of internal and external stakeholders. Some of this is governed by rules and standards like IFRS and local GAAP, but finance leaders need to look at the bigger picture and respond appropriately.

This course discusses how to balance the potential benefits gained from providing information, with the costs of collecting and presenting it. It will help you to futureproof your organisation’s approach by covering some key financial reporting, audit and non-financial reporting trends. It also looks at how to provide context for your financial statements and forward-looking information to your stakeholders.

This course will enable you to:

  • identify the different needs of various stakeholder groups
  • stay ahead of the standard setters to anticipate financial reporting trends
  • identify trends in audit and how they may affect your accounting and reporting policies
  • develop non-financial reporting on issues such as carbon performance and sustainability
  • tell the story of your business to your stakeholders.
