On September 20, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton offered its first accounting webinar.

More than a hundred clients and business contacts signed up for the hour-long presentation entitled “New IFRS on Fair Value Measurement: Are You Ready?” which was given by a duo of experts, Sophie Bureau, CPA, CA, Partner, Risk Management and Accounting Research, and Stéphanie Fournier, CPA, CA, Senior Manager, Risk Management and Accounting Research.

The online event covered the main requirements of IFRS 13, a new International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) dealing with fair value measurement. As IFRS 13 will become effective for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2013, preparing for its application is a priority for all players involved.

Congratulations to the team on their success!
