BDO is your partner for International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) - from adoption and conversion to interpretation.

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS, previously IAS) are the most widespread international reporting standards. Companies listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange that have opted for the SIX standard "International Reporting Standard" can report either in accordance with IFRS or US GAAP. Unlisted companies can opt to apply IFRS for SMEs.
