International Financial Reporting Standards 

Growing number of companies in Russia and the CIS are adopting International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The benefits of IFRS include enhanced comparability and improved transparency of financial reporting.

KPMG has a wide experience in supporting conversion to IFRS in companies of various economic sectors, including Oil and Gas, Banking and Insurance, Industrial and Telecommunication companies.


KPMG cooperates with the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation on development of new Russian accounting principles as a part of convergence project of Russian accounting principles with IFRS.
