On demand video - Don't let IFRS 16 ruin your year end!

As the end of the financial year approaches for many businesses in Australia, now is the time to make sure your IFRS 16 accounting compliance is up-to-date and accurate to ensure you aren’t caught out by any nasty surprises that impact your balance sheet.

On the 10th June 2021, we hosted a panel discussion webinar to enable you to get a better understanding of what auditors will be looking for in your IFRS 16 compliance and get some best practice advice from a market leader in the transport and logistics industry with a complex lease portfolio (Freightways). We were joined by the following guests:
