The Financial Reporting Foundation (FRF) and the Malaysian Accounting Standards Board (MASB) have entered into an arrangement with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) to provide an online learning and assessment programme to Malaysian registrants through the FRF / MASB website, at a special rate from 2015 until 2016. This arrangement would enable Malaysians a good opportunity to enable themselves to be proficient in IFRSs.
