    IFRS is basically International Financial Reporting Standards which are accounting standards issued by the IFRS Foundation and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). IFRS requires businesses to report their financial results and financial position using the same standards and rules; this means that, barring any fraudulent manipulation, there is considerable uniformity in the financial reporting of all businesses using IFRS, which makes it easier to compare and contrast their financial results.

    Diploma in International Financial Reporting (DipIFR) is an international qualification in IFRS developed by the leading professional accounting organisation which is known as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) – which helps to develop knowledge in the area of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

    IFRS professionals working in the top global auditing firms earn a starting annual package of Rs 8 lacs to Rs 15 lacs per annum as per the LinkedIn salary report. There is another report that shows that many of the accounting consultants who are specialized in the IFRS work in India have an average salary take can go up to 19 lakhs. As one gains experience, the salary accordingly increases.
