Accounting and Management of Fixed Assets According to Modern Standards


Accounting and asset management are essential tasks for any organization. Assets are the fundamental resources that organizations utilize in production and to generate future profits. In this training course, we will discuss the managerial and accounting methods for these assets based on "International Financial Reporting Standards."
