CPD Course: Managing Remote Teams

IAS 33 Earnings per Share

Earnings per share (EPS) is one of the most widely used metrics in financial analysis. It’s so important, in fact, that it’s the only financial ratio to have its own accounting standard! 

The formula for calculating basic EPS is relatively straightforward; however, it’s a bit more complicated when it comes to the financial reporting for EPS. There are several specific accounting and disclosure requirements for EPS under IAS 33 Earnings Per Share that you, as a finance professional, need to abide by if your organisation or client is to be IFRS compliant. There are also two different forms of EPS (basic and diluted) that need to be reported, and the calculation to be used differs depending on the specific situation.

In this course, we’ll guide you through the different methods of calculating EPS and the financial reporting requirements outlined in IAS 33
