About the qualification

The ACCA DipIFR is an IFRS qualification by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the leading global accounting body involved in the development of IFRS.

With over 157 countries requiring or permitting the use of IFRS, IFRS standards have gone on to become the de facto global language of financial reporting and are used extensively across developed, emerging and developing economies. The ACCA DipIFR course is designed to develop your knowledge and understanding of IFRS.

The course also helps participants learn how to apply IFRS, as well as the concepts and principles which underpin them.

ACCA Study - PwC’s Academy in India

Why study for ACCA DipIFR - diploma in IFRS?

With the evolving use of technology, changing demographics, growth and evolution of emerging markets, and liberalisation of regulations, the pace of globalisation has been accelerating, leading to an unprecedented expansion of corporates across boundaries. This change has necessitated a common accounting language which is understandable and acceptable across the globe to enable the transparency and comparability of financial information across various jurisdictions.

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) have been adopted by most of the countries, including developed and emerging economies across the globe. The adoption of substantially converged IFRS standards in India—that is, Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS)— establishes their relevance in the country and resonates well with the growth of the Indian economy. Further, it is becoming increasingly important for accounting and finance professionals to be financially multilingual.

To keep pace with the changing needs of the market, we have a unique opportunity for you - a live online training programme that will prepare you for the qualification of the ACCA DipIFR.

The ACCA DipIFR helps:

  • Systematise existing knowledge and make you a more competent business or finance practitioner;
  • Increase in professional opportunities for advancement;
  • Expand the range of professional communication
