Introduction of IFRS

With the diversification and globalization of business operations, there is a continuing trend for Japanese companies, as parent companies, to measure the financial position and operating results of their overseas subsidiaries using the common IFRS yardstick and to make management decisions. In addition, to meet the needs of investors, some companies are adopting IFRS in order to raise funds more smoothly.

In Japan, the number of companies that have adopted or decided to adopt IFRS is 260 as of February 2023 (according to data published by Japan Exchange Group).
