      BACKGROUND INFORMATION

      IAS 38 ‘Intangible Assets’ defines such asset as an identifiable non-monetary asset without physical substance.
      The intangible asset’s lack of physical substance does not mean that it is not identifiable. For instance, an intangible asset may be identifiable because despite it lacking physical substance, it can still be sold to another party separately. Another example is an intangible asset arising from contractual or other legal rights.
      There are various types of intangible assets, and the accounting treatment tends to differ between one type and another. Moreover, it is not always straightforward to decide whether the intangible expenditure is to be capitalised or not. The seminar will provide an overview of the various types of intangible assets, as well as the way that they are treated. A selected number of special situations treated under IFRS and GAPSME shall be tackled.
      The seminar will also delve into the fair value measurement of intangible assets and the situations where this is allowed or not.

      Specific topics to be covered during the session

      • Objective of the standard
      • Key definitions
      • Recognition
      • Initial and Subsequent measurement
      • Derecognition
      • Classification
      • Special considerations for complex examples
      • Disclosure requirements

      Why is the session of relevance to our members?

      The relevance of this session emanates from the increased complexities faced by the profession in transactions involving Intangible Assets on a day to day basis

      Target Audience

      This CPE is intended for accounting professionals, upcoming students as well as practicing auditors.

          BACKGROUND INFORMATION

          Traditionally, commercial properties have been valued using the traditional capitalization method. This is an inflation implicit valuation method where the rental value is divided by an all-risks yield (ARY) in order to obtain the Market Value.
          However, the world is experiencing a shift towards the discounted cash flow method as it is an inflation explicit method which is more versatile which makes it able to cater for changing complexities in lease structures. This shift has been slow in Malta as there remains a reluctance within the real estate sector to adopting valuation approaches in which these factors are made more explicit for a variety of reasons.
          The webinar will discuss the key concepts and principles of these two methods, being the two main methods in the income approach. It will comment upon the on-going debate about the preferred use of implicit models of valuation vs their explicit counterparts by giving an overview of the processes and pros and cons of both methods and will give guidance about when to use both methods.

          Specific topics to be covered during the session

          • The traditional capitalization method
          • The discounted cash flow method
          • Practical examples and key considerations

          Why is the session of relevance to our members?

          BACKGROUND INFORMATION

          Certain financial statement disclosures prove to be challenging to preparers, users and auditors of financial statements alike. This is especially true for disclosures that are more than a disaggregated analysis of amounts included in an entity's primary statements. This package of seminars will address a number of these disclosures through the use of relatable examples; where relevant, presentation considerations will also be covered. The agenda for the seminars includes disclosures related to:
          Session 1
          • Market risk, credit risk, liquidity risk, and capital management disclosures for corporates,
          • Disclosures of fair values and of valuation techniques adopted
          • Accounting policies, and significant estimates and judgements
          • Presentation of assets and liabilities as current or non-current
          Session 2
          • Disclosures of business combinations, and of investments in subsidiaries, associates and joint arrangements,
          • Related parties and related party transactions
          • Investing and financing cash flows
          • Disclosures related to contracts with customers
          Session 3
          • Determination of segments, and disclosure of segmental information,
          • Earnings per share
          • Interim reporting

          Why is the session of relevance to our members?

          Preparing quality financial statements is an important function for any accountant, and this package of seminars will equip attendees with the requisite knowledge to be more confident in preparing or auditing financial statements.

          Target Audience

          Preparers of financial statements and auditors, and anyone with an interest in disclosures in financial statements

          BACKGROUND INFORMATION

          In today's economy, we take resources from the Earth, manufacture items from them, and finally discard them as garbage - the process is linear. In a circular economy, on the other hand, we prevent waste from being created in the first place.
          Accounting and financing are critical to the success of circular businesses and to achieving sustainable development. Creating circular businesses is a key path to accelerate the circular transformation and achieve major climate targets like net-zero emissions. However, there are some key challenges in implementing circular accounting approaches to capture the value of circular business models and help circular businesses be successful. These challenges will be discussed in detail in this session. 

          Specific topics to be covered during the session

          • What is circular economy
          • What are the challenges of supporting the Circular Economy in financial accounting
          • What are the benefits of incorporating Circular Economy in financial reporting
          • What is carbon neutrality
          • How can businesses contribute towards carbon neutrality.

          WHY IS THE SESSION OF RELEVANCE TO OUR MEMBERS?

          Accountants are usually the first port of call for most business owners when they need to evaluate the feasibility of a project/product or to get general business advice. However, accountants might not have the time to focus on some areas such as environmental issues, meaning that they might not be in a position to properly guide their clients. This session will give a good general background on the topic while still entering into the details of the subject.  

          Target Audience

          • Accountants and prospective accountants who work mainly on the provision of financial reporting beyond financial statements.
          • Accountants and prospective accountants in general.
          • Business advisors.
          • Business owners and self-employed persons who would like to transform their business into a more sustainable one.

          BACKGROUND INFORMATION

          Certain financial statement disclosures prove to be challenging to preparers, users and auditors of financial statements alike. This is especially true for disclosures that are more than a disaggregated analysis of amounts included in an entity's primary statements. This session will address a number of these disclosures through the use of relatable examples; where relevant, presentation considerations will also be covered. The agenda for the seminars includes disclosures related to:
          • Determination of segments, and disclosure of segmental information;
          • Earnings per share; and
          • Interim reporting.

          Why is the session of relevance to our members?

          Preparing quality financial statements is an important function for any accountant, and this package of seminars will equip attendees with the requisite knowledge to be more confident in preparing or auditing financial statements.

          Target Audience

          Preparers of financial statements and auditors, and anyone with an interest in disclosures in financial statements
