IFRS Accounting Standards

The companies whose shares or bonds are traded publicly are obliged to prepare their financial statements according to the IFRS Accounting Standards. For other companies, following the IFRS standards is voluntary. The transition into using IFRS Accounting Standards becomes actual, for instance, when the company lists into a stock exchange.
