Financial reporting conference 2010

Access information about the 2010 financial reporting conference.

Tuesday, 19 October–Wednesday, 20 October 2010

Significant changes to the financial reporting and auditing landscape are imminent. The establishment of the Financial Markets Authority, the reconstitution of the Accounting Standards Review Board as the External Reporting Board, and the introduction of auditor oversight are all likely in 2011. Soon after that changes are expected in relation to who should have to report and in relation to tiers of reporting and the accounting and auditing standards which should apply to those tiers.

The conference features an outstanding set of speakers from New Zealand and Australia to address these issues.
