Local small and medium-sized companies are allowed to apply simplified accounting regulations (General Accounting Principles for Small and Medium-Sized Entities, commonly referred to as GAPSME), rather than International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), for accounting periods commencing on or after 1 January 2016. The six-hour online seminar is aimed to provide attendees with a refresher of the applicability and application of General Accounting Principles for Small and Medium-Sized Entities (GAPSME) at both financial accounting and financial reporting levels, including awareness of the differences between IFRS and GAPSME, when presenting financial information to users.


Paul Zammit graduated from the University of Malta after completing the Bachelor of Accountancy (Honours) Degree in 2008.  Paul commenced his career in audit and switched to accountancy in 2012. He spent most of his time in accountancy managing a portfolio of international clientele, before joining Zampa Debattista’s accounts department in 2017.

After a few months, Paul decided to accept the internal opportunity to specialise in technical matters and increase his proficiency in reporting standards. Paul is currently involved in technical accounting and advisory assignments, whilst training and assisting internal staff and external people on IFRS technical matters. Paul currently lectures ACCA and ACA students.
