Similarities and differences between IFRS and Dutch GAAP

During this masterclass we give you a basic overview and discuss the similarities and differences between IFRS and Dutch GAAP. We have developed a practice aid to identify the differences. During this masterclass we will also discuss the contents of this practice aid.

This session is particularly interesting if:

  • you are considering converting from Dutch GAAP to IFRS;
  • your company reports under Dutch GAAP for statutory requirement, but group reporting is based on IFRS.
