Audit and Assurance

Because it has never been more vital to be able to have confidence in an audit, HLB International member firms strive to ensure audits are carried out to the highest standard.

Enhancing your credibility

IFRS services

For cross-border businesses, having consistent and easily comparable financial information is crucial. International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are a set of global generally accepted accounting principles for companies to use in the preparation of their financial statements, which are particularly relevant for companies with shares or securities listed on public stock exchanges. Set by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), they are applied in over 160 jurisdictions. HLB’s IFRS advisers can help you to understand and apply these complex standards, improving the clarity and quality of the financial information you need to underpin key business decisions.
