Deloitte’s Global Audit Learning group has released new or revised e-learning modules on various standards: IFRS 3, IFRS 11, IFRS 13, IAS 1, IAS 16 and IAS 27 (2011). These modules are additions to the extensive catalogue of IFRS e-learning content made freely available by Deloitte.

Each Deloitte e-learning module provides training in the background, scope and principles of each pronouncement, and provides practical insights into their application.

Details of the modules are as follows:

  • IFRS 3 Business Combinations — Topics covered include the definition of a business combination, amounts included in consideration transferred, recognition and measurement principles, and accounting for goodwill.
  • IFRS 11 Joint Arrangements — Topics covered include the concept of 'joint control', classifying joint arrangements in practical situations, and accounting treatments for joint arrangements
  • IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement — Topics covered include the identification of assets and liabilities, market characteristics and market participants, determining the highest and best use of non-financial assets, the measurement of liabilities, appropriate valuation techniques, determining the level in the hierarchy and the correct price, and disclosure
  • IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements — Topics covered include financial statements, aggregation and set off, classifying items as current or non-current, classifying items between profit or loss and other comprehensive income, items disclosed on the face of the statement of changes in equity, items disclosed, and the notes, nature of information and key assumptions required to complete the set of financial statements
