Financial Reporting: Presentation (U.S. GAAP vs. IFRS)
The first course of a three-course series, this course concentrates on financial statements prepared using IFRS vs. U.S. GAAP. Examine an IFRS financial statement and outline basic distinctions between IFRS and U.S. GAAP reports in the series.
A recent IFRS Foundation survey found that 116 of 140 jurisdictions required IFRS for all or most companies. With this global acceptance, and as more than 500 foreign companies are reporting to the SEC using IFRS, you need to be able to read and understand the differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP financial reports.
