About this event

Who should attend?

The series is designed for local authority capital accountants and all staff with an interest in understanding more about how capital investment planning can be enhanced and how the principles embodied in the Prudential and Treasury Management Codes can be applied in practice.

It will also benefit staff seeking an update on the new leasing standard IFRS 16, to gain a deeper understanding of its likely impact and the key actions needed to prepare for a successful implementation and transition.

How will you benefit from attending?

Attendees will gain:

  • greater awareness of how CIPFA's Prudential and Treasury Management codes are being updated to ensure they remain fit for purpose, and what actions will be required at your organisation to meet the revised requirements
  • an update to CIPFA's guidance on effective capital strategies and how taking a whole organisation approach can enhance strategic financial and asset planning processes
  • a greater understanding of how the new leasing standard might impact locally and the practical considerations required for a successful implementation, including key accounting policy and judgement areas likely to be required, and the actions required for transition
