IFRS in Kazakhstan

IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) have become the common language for financial reporting worldwide. Organizations need to proactively manage the impact of these principles-based standards on the reporting of their complex transactions. They also need to stay up to date on the constant evolution of IFRSs.

The most important differences at a glance:

  • IFRS implies substance over form.
  • IFRS stipulates presentation of most items at fair value.
  • IFRS implies special treatment of revenues generated per long-term contracts.
  • IFRS provides more opportunities to treat items omitted or not-recorded in local GAAP.

  • Preparation of financial reports for HQ according to IFRS on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis
