Financial Reporting Services

More than 100 countries on all five continents require or permit the use of IFRS. Major economies in Asia-Pacific, North America and Latin America have set out a time line towards the full adoption of IFRSs.

Many Malaysian companies have adopted MFRS since 1 January 2012. Private entities shall adopt MPERS or MFRS on or after 1 January 2016.

Whether you are already compliant or planning to adopt IFRS/MFRS/MPERS, Mazars can help you.

At Mazars, we developed a comprehensive knowledge of IFRS/MFRS/MPERS. Our approach is practical and focused on the substance of the transactions. We always favour the economic view.

Our experience was gained largely in Europe where IFRS was adopted in 2005, building up substantial expertise across various sectors including insurance, banking, retail, media, property, telecom, power, manufacturing, agriculture and transport. Our IFRS Team comprises partners and senior staff members located in offices around the world in Asia Pacific, Europe, South Africa, South America and the USA.
