This 32-page booklet reviews the implications of changing to IFRS not only with respect to accounting systems and financial reporting but also to other management issues including treasury management; distributions; debt covenants and financing; mergers and acquisitions; management compensation; product development; management information; statutory accounts and taxes; human resources; IT systems; and investor relations. The guide sets out practical ideas for addressing these and other issues.
