In Brazil, the process of converting financial statements to IFRS standards started in 2010, with the possibility of early adoption, and must be presented in a comparative way with the previous year.

IFRS in Brief/Briefing Sheets 

The growing demand for specialized and reliable information on international accounting standards caused KPMG International to inaugurate a service so that clients of its members firms are always well informed about what is most current in IFRS.
