Welcome to the 7th IFRS 16 webinar featuring Kathinka Bjørne-Larsen from Visma

  • handling acquisitions, the onboarding process
  • efficiency with integrations


Read further down for the detailed agenda.



Maintaining diligence with size, before and during closing

During the webinar, Kathinka will explain how Visma sets up accounting and IFRS practices, covering crucial topics such as maintaining contract data, calculations, consolidation, and valuation in a single system. She will also discuss the responsibilities of the finance team and their routines before closing, including audit handling.

Visma has multiple companies and, during the webinar, Kathinka will discuss how they handle these companies, who is responsible for the maintenance of contract data, calculations, consolidation, and valuation of a single system. Additionally, she will explain the routines that the finance team follows before closing, and how they handle the audit.


Acquisitions and divestments

An important part of Visma’s growth strategy is acquisitions. Kathinka will help us understand what is important to consider regarding IFRS 16 when onboarding an acquired company, and what Visma does to make this process efficient. We will also briefly talk about some takeaways after the divestment of twoday that happened last year.

Efficiency with integrations

Integrations are essential in streamlining accounting and IFRS practices, and Kathinka will provide insights into what happens after the contract managers have done their job. She will explain the closing and reconciliation processes, including possible visualizations in a slide.

Connected by software – driven by people


We develop and deliver software to small businesses, medium and large enterprises, and the public sector – improving the work-life of millions of people around the world. Our software simplifies and automates complex and manual work processes, empowering people’s everyday lives.

Visma is a collection of entrepreneurial companies, each with their own start-up mentality, personality, and leadership. All our companies have business autonomy and go-to-market freedom – a key ingredient to our growth.



Shaping the future of society through technology.

We work towards a more effective society and believe that technology is an essential ingredient. We seek to redefine the landscape of work—making it more efficient, flexible, and secure. Digitalisation continues at a record pace, and we take a firm and leading role in our efforts to digitalise both business and society. Creating such change requires that we continually think long term about what our customers and society need.

We stay in touch with these evolving needs through close contact and open dialogue with our customers and stakeholders. We participate in order to lead.  Over time, people have learned they can count on Visma to deliver solutions that make their everyday lives easier. At the same time, rising expectations mean that we have to constantly innovate our technologies, products, support, and ways of working.

We have many customers, from small businesses to large enterprises, from local municipalities to national governments, who are performing critical activities for society. Contributing positively to society is thus part of our core business. Our internal actions towards sustainability mean we are society-minded operationally as well.



We improve people’s everyday lives through our software. 

Over the last years, the world has made a 15-year leap in digitalisation. When suddenly everything had to happen from home, we experienced just how critical our solutions are. Our mission-critical software is fundamental for both businesses and societies. And we are key to keep society running. 

It has never been more evident how essential digitalisation is. Digital solutions are critical to any business and key to supporting modern society. From being known for delivering traditional accounting and payroll systems, Visma has, through our software, proved to have a critical function, for society, businesses and people. 

With our systems, businesses and governments can handle multiple tasks and processes and minimise tasks that steal their valuable time. We ensure that companies have better opportunities to manage, continue productivity and strengthen, even in times of crisis.
