International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) - An AICPA Backgrounder

The growing acceptance of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as a basis for U.S. financial reporting represents a fundamental change for the U.S. accounting profession. Today nearly 100 countries require or allow the use of IFRS for the preparation of financial statements by publicly held companies. In the United States, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is considering taking steps to set a date to allow U.S. public companies to use IFRS, and perhaps make its adoption mandatory. This 500K pdf document provides background information on IFRS.
