Whether you’re a large company or SME, we can help you navigate the complexity of the Standards so you can focus your time and effort on running your business.

Grant Thornton is one of only five South African auditing firms with its own JSE-accredited in-house IFRS specialist. This means that technical opinions can be made quickly, without causing delay to the audit timing.

The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), are global accounting standards that are fast becoming the global accounting language. Using IFRS can help increase the quality, comparability and transparency of your financial information. Applying them correctly will increase your company's credibility and improve access to credit and investment opportunities.
