A Guide to IFRS and a Comparison to GAAP
The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is the framework used by many publicly traded companies around the world today to report their financial results. With support from important constituencies, the SEC and the FASB have taken several steps toward what will be a major transition from the accounting and reporting framework currently in place in the United States to IFRS. In an effort to better understand how convergence will affect financial reporting in the United States, this course provides an overview, by accounting area, of similarities and differences between U.S. GAAP and IFRS. It highlights differences most commonly found in current practice that may affect a converting entity’s financial statements. It also provides an overview of significant completed convergence projects in the accounting standards.
