Changes in CMA Material

2020/2021

CHANGES OVERVIEW

Part 1:
The study units have been reorganized to guide a clearer logical flow and connection of the topics. Coverage on off-balance-sheet financing, accounting for equity investments under IFRS, lessor accounting, net operating loss, and internal auditing have been removed to reflect changes in the syllabus effective Jan 2020. Coverage on COBIT framework has been reduced and coverage on treasury stock transactions have been added to better align with the LOSs.

Minor wording changes were made throughout, and new definitions and examples were added. Furthermore, additions to the outlines have been made to better support answers to some questions.
