The Western Region of The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) is organising a two-days Regional Conference on the theme of ‘Embracing Change’ on November 19-20in Mumbai.

Crucially, this conference seeks to address some of the vital challenges being faced by the accounting world as well as the financial community amid the fast-changing global and domestic economic environment. The conference will also delve on how these changes and financial misdemeanours by a few companies have prompted the regulators, society and other stakeholders to put a greater responsibility on the accounting profession.

The conference will deliberate at length on Fair Value Accounting, which is one of the very important and all-pervasive changes in the IFRS, and its impact on businesses, valuations and markets.

The seminar will also examine how the likely provisions of General Anti Avoidance Regulations in the Direct Tax Code shall have a far-reaching impact on the administration of fiscal statutes in near future.

Another issue which will see some deliberations involves Indian corporates looking to make global acquisitions.
