IFRS for SMEs in Guatemala

Guatemala's College of Auditors and Public Accountants has agreed to adopt the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).

Friday, July 23, 2010


On 13 July, 2010, Guatemala's official government newspaper published the agreement that brings into being the standard. The agreement is found in official note number JD 140042010 from the board of the Guatemalan Institute of Auditors and Public Accountants (IGCPA).

By implication, the description of an SME is now that defined in the corresponding IFRS standard for SMEs, which are companies that have no public accountability obligation. Any financial statements they publish are for general information.
