IFRS: Global Rules & Local Use

The School of Business Administration at Anglo-American University and the Department of International Business at Metropolitan University Prague organize the yearly International Scientific Conference “IFRS: Global Rules & Local Use – Beyond the Numbers”.

About the Conference

The conference IFRS: Global Rules and Local Use was created and developed at Anglo-American University in 2013 and organized annually. In 2019, the 7th year of the conference, Metropolitan University Prague and Anglo-American University concluded an agreement on joint organization. The 8th annual conference was held online, on Microsoft Teams, on October 8-9, 2020. We hope to get to usual onsite organization from 2021 onwards.  

Scholars, students and interested public wishing to know more about bridging the gap between international accounting rules (IFRS) and local applications are invited to share their knowledge and experience at this event. Issues to be discussed involve finance, accounting, and management.

With the current trend towards accounting harmonisation, the aim of this conference is to focus on specific accounting differences and what lies behind them as well as topics related to international trade. Topics should be researched both theoretically and practically, focusing on practices in emerging markets and transitional economies.

Conference Topics

Topics suitable for the conference include, but are not limited to:

  • Specific issues related to incorporation of EU Accounting Directives into national accounting rules
  • Valuation of companies in transitional markets
  • Sustainability, environmental and integrated reporting
  • Professional training of accountants in the IFRS era
  • Historical perspectives on IFRS in different countries
  • Relationship between tax and accounting
  • Impact of IFRS on reporting and controlling
  • Financial reporting for SMEs
  • Impression management
  • Territorial aspects, e.g. growing importance of developing countries
  • International taxation
  • Regional impact of international trade regulations
  • IFRS & capital markets
