International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) in Kazakhstan: Transition and adaptation

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) in Kazakhstan: Transition and adaptation

In the context of the globalization of the economy and the expansion of international business, the implementation of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is becoming a key aspect for Kazakh companies. This article from NRG Audit examines the importance of adopting IFRS in Kazakhstan and the key steps for successful adoption.

Importance of IFRS for Kazakhstan Companies

The transition to IFRS is an important step for Kazakh companies seeking to expand their activities into the international market. IFRS provides transparency in financial reporting, increases the confidence of investors and partners, and improves the comparability and understanding of financial results at the international level.

Transition to IFRS: Main Stages

  1. Assessment of the current situation: First of all, companies need to evaluate their current financial statements and accounting procedures in terms of their compliance with IFRS.
  2. Training and development of personnel: A key aspect is training accounting and finance personnel in the principles and norms of IFRS.
  3. Adaptation of accounting systems: It is necessary to adapt or implement accounting systems that support reporting in accordance with IFRS.
  4. Practical implementation: This includes the transition from national standards to IFRS, which may require time and resources to adjust the financial statements.
  5. Audit and consultations: It is important to conduct an audit to verify compliance with IFRS and, if necessary, seek professional advice.

Challenges and Benefits

The transition to IFRS may be accompanied by certain difficulties, such as the need to update IT systems and staff training. However, the benefits far outweigh these initial costs. Companies using IFRS can expect improved investment attractiveness, simplified access to international financial markets and increased efficiency of management accounting.


The transition to IFRS is a strategic step for Kazakh companies seeking to develop and integrate into the global economy.
