Why would you want to apply IFRS for SMEs?

You might want to apply International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) for various reasons.

Firstly, it provides a globally recognised framework for reporting financial information, which can enhance the credibility and transparency of a company’s financial statements. This can be beneficial when seeking investment or attracting potential business partners.

It provides a more personalised set of accounting standards that are specifically designed for the unique characteristics and needs of SMEs.

However, it is important to note that full IFRS may be more complex and costly to implement for smaller businesses compared to the simplified version of IFRS specifically designed for SMEs called IFRS for SMEs. The decision to adopt full IFRS should be carefully considered, taking into account the size, complexity, and resources of the SME.
