The United States is engaged in a significant project with the IASB to converge IFRS and U.S. GAAP. And this project is having a major influence on the way in which IFRS will develop for the world as a whole. But recent developments suggest that IFRS may start to be permitted in the United States itself—something that could scarcely have been contemplated, even a few years ago. It will be some years before answers become clear. Nevertheless, it is clear that there has been a major strategic shift in international accounting as a result ofthe SEC actions.
This course prepares accountants for these upcoming changes and will help solidify your knowledge of the similarities and differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP. You will also learn to apply specific IFRS standards to the impacted financial statement elements. Walk away with a greater understanding of what you need to know as the acceptance of International standards continues to grow.
Prerequisite: Completion of AICPA course International versus U.S. Accounting: What in the World is the Difference (in any available format) or a high-level understanding of the conceptual differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP.
Advanced Preparation: None
