Spotlight on - Tan Liong Tong

Those of you in the Malaysian accounting world no doubt know of Professor Tan Liong Tong. Whether it's his reference books or his technical seminars, Professor Tan has dedicated a significant portion of his life to imparting accounting knowledge to students and working professionals alike.

He has been involved in many of our recent accounting-related publications here in Malaysia, and his books are constantly in high demand. Not only does he covers standards as a whole, such as the Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards and the Malaysian Private Entities Reporting Standard, he also zeroes in on specific complex topics such as financial instruments and deferred taxation.

At the same time, he is one of our key speakers for accounting related events, covering many topics from implementing new standards and adapting to the latest changes in existing standards.

Professor Tan is currently working on the latest edition of Consolidated Financial Statements (8th edition), which is expected to be out in the third quarter of 2016. Amongst other things as a result of changes to the MFRS, it will also incorporate the latest changes to as a result of the Companies Bill 2015, as well explain the relevant requirements under the new MPERS Framework.

Also scheduled for 2016 is the ever popular Financial Accounting and Reporting in Malaysia, now heading into a sixth edition.

He continues to do research and keeps up to date on the latest trends and developments in accounting. He has become an important knowledge asset for the Malaysian accounting industry.
