New York, NY, June 26, 2008 --( The Knowledge Congress, the leading producer of regulatory focused teleconferences and webinars, announced today that it has scheduled a live teleconference and webinar on The Impact of IFRS: Getting Ready for the Major Change to Tax Operations. This two-hour event is scheduled on Thursday, September 25, 2008 at 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT – New York).

Since IFRS have become widely accepted around the world, U.S. companies have been cognizant on the effects of a possible pending adoption. Among these are issues concerning the transition from GAAP to IFRS, tax reporting, tax accounting, and other matters pertaining to an organization’s financial reporting system. The question that arises now is, are U.S. companies ready to adopt these standards? And more importantly how would this scenario play out.

Find out the answers in this event, including best practices. Produced by The Knowledge Congress, key industry experts and regulators are expected to share their views in a two-hour teleconference and webinar.
