COMPLIMENTARY WEBINAR: MPERS E-BOOK AND LATEST DEVELOPMENTS


The MIA Illustrative MPERS Financial Statements, with Commentaries and Guidance Notes was published in 2018 which is the second edition of the MIA Illustrative MPERS Financial Statements. As part of ongoing advocacy for competency building and digitalisation of the profession to ensure its future relevance, the Institute has developed the interactive e-book version of the 2018 publication. The interactive features such as informative videos and quizzes will enhance the understanding of the reader. Additionally, this e-book is also accessible from multiple devices which ease access to such technical publication. The launch of the e-book will be in line with our digital initiatives under the MIA Digital Technology Blueprint. This e-book will be made available as part of our new e-Library in order to help upskill members and develop their competencies in financial reporting for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) via a digital platform.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every business including the SMEs. The accounting implication of SMEs who are reporting using MPERS would include, among others, impairment of assets, going concern assessment as well as subsequent events. Both preparers and auditors need to understand and accordingly address the impact of these issues on the MPERS financial statements especially when many entities are reaching their financial year end.

Finally, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) issued Request for Information (RFI) on Comprehensive Review of the IFRS for SMEs Standard in early 2020. The RFI seeks views on whether and how aligning the IFRS for SMEs Standard with the full IFRS Standards could better serve users of financial statements prepared applying the IFRS for SMEs Standard without causing undue cost and effort for SMEs.

We are pleased to invite you to join a virtual event on the launching of the interactive e-book followed by a panel discussion on the latest developments of MPERS. The details of the event are as follows:
