Public sector reform: Reporting and auditing accrual based accounts

30 June 2017, 10:00 Chambre de Commerce Luxembourgeoise, 7 Rue Alcide de Gasperi, 1615 Luxembourg City, Luxembourg View on Google Maps

This Public Sector Accounting Roundtable, a joint project with the Institute of Registered Auditors of Luxembourg (IRE), will start with an overview of the latest trends (e.g. integrated reporting) in public sector reporting. Afterwards, we will focus on the challenges in auditing accrual based accounts. Different stakeholders will share their experiences and best practices concerning audit during a panel discussion.

Luxembourg will host both the International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) and Accountancy Europe’s Public Sector Group meeting around the event. It is also the seat of the European Court of Auditors and the European Commission Task force on Public Sector Accounting Standards for European Member States (EPSAS).
