Your one indispensable guide to IFRS compliance
International Accounting Standards (IAS), or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), as they will be referred to henceforth, are receiving more attention than ever, having now been endorsed by the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) and the European Union (EU). The EU now requires that listed companies throughout the European Union apply IFRS, instead of previously employed national accounting standards for consolidated financial reporting purposes. This, along with the growing list of nations (such as Australia, Russia, and Tanzania) either formally adopting IFRS or basing national standards on them, and the ever-expanding group of major international companies choosing to report using that basis of accounting, will likely provide the impetus necessary to catapult IFRS into truly global use and acceptance. Furthermore, the recent U.S. SEC's call for a fundamental shift in the philosophy underlying the U.S. accounting standard-setting process from the "rules-based" approach to the "principles-based" system (which has always been the hallmark of the International Accounting Standards) is generating a great deal of interest in these standards even in the U.S., thus paving the way for faster-than-expected global "convergence."
Wiley IFRS 2005 is the compact yet truly comprehensive quick-reference guide that accountants can depend on to assist in the understanding and preparing of financial statements presented in accordance with IFRS. This new edition includes complete coverage of all the standards and interpretations issued or revised by the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC), as well as the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). In addition, excerpts taken from published financial statements of companies around the globe reporting under IAS illustrate practical applications of the standards and provide comprehensive examples of footnote disclosures. Furthermore, appendices to the book incorporating illustrative financial statements presented under IFRS, an IFRS checklist, and a table outlining comparisons of the salient provisions of IFRS to both U.S. GAAP and U.K. GAAP requirements enhance the practical utility of this book. EU companies required to switch to IFRS in 2005 will find practical "how-to" advice and implementation guidance on IFRS 1, First-Time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards. In addition, the book offers in-depth coverage of the latest changes made to extant standards by the IASB's "Improvements Project," effective this year.
This up-to-date 2005 edition covers important, complex requirements addressed by recent IFRS, including:
