The IFRS for SMEs has been adopted in the Republic of the Philippines effective 1 January 2010. It is known as the Philippine Financial Reporting Standard for SMEs (PFRS for SMEs).

In the Philippines, listed companies, large unlisted companies, financial institutions, and public utilities are all required to use full PFRSs, which are nearly identical to full IFRSs. The PFRS for SMEs must be used by any other entity that has total assets of between P3,000,000 and P350,000,000 (US$70,000 to $8,000,000) or total liabilities of between P3 million and P250 million (US$70,000 to $5,500,000). Entities below those thresholds (so-called 'micro entities') may use the PFRS for SMEs or 'another acceptable basis of accounting'. PFRSs are developed by the Philippine Financial Reporting Standards Council and approved and issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (P-SEC). Click for:
