If the mere mention of business combination accounting or impairment testing makes you break into a cold sweat (or a deep slumber), you are not alone!

These accounting standards are highly relevant in this ever evolving business environment but can be hard to apply in business or can often be misinterpreted.

We have a practical solution which will help you not only apply these two standards with plenty of useful tips, but also share the common pitfalls that you'll want to avoid on the way.

We have asked our best and brightest accounting standard specialists here at PwC to break down these accounting standards into two easy-to-digest and practical online training sessions, giving you the freedom and flexibility to upskill, build your confidence and gain those valuable CPD credits.

Our 90 minute online training will be followed by a 30 minute Q&A where our team will answer any questions you may have.
