NZ Equivalents to International Financial Reporting Standards

The change to New Zealand Equivalents to International Financial Reporting Standards (NZ IFRS) represented the most significant shift in financial reporting in New Zealand for more than a generation. Its implications reached far beyond technical accounting, and many companies have found that their entire business practices are impacted.

Issues including financial instruments (such as hedging), pensions and tax, mean that companies must understand how the new standards affect them, and the wider industry sector in which they sit.

Conversion to NZ IFRS is not, however, the end of the story. The continued need to embed NZ IFRS reporting across wider systems and processes mean that companies must continually adapt their finance function to meet the NZ IFRS challenge and achieve long-term efficiency.
