Course Description

Course Description

IFRS was established to have a common accounting language, so business and accounts can be understood from company to company and country to country. When International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) come into effect to replace GAAP, public companies will have to change how they present their financial statements from GAAP to IFRS. Many other companies are also contemplating switching to IFRS to compete worldwide for investors who are already familiar with IFRS.

IFRS First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards sets out the procedures that an entity must follow when it adopts IFRSs for the first time as the basis for preparing its general purpose financial statements. IFRS requires that the accountant be able to understand and explain the differences between IFRS and US GAAP. Adopting IFRS means that accountants working for US companies will be expected to continue to prepare US GAAP statements, but in addition will have to prepare IFRS financial statements to meet IFRS requirements, along with a reconciling financial statement which bridges the gap between the two.

This online CPE Accounting webinar covers the following key topics:

  • Introduction: IFRS overview
  • Comparative treatment differences
  • Revenue recognition
  • Asset valuation and depreciation
  • Compound Assets and Cash Generating Units
  • Provisions and contingencies
  • GAAP/ IFRS reconciliation statement preparation
  • Disclosures
  • Financial Statement presentation
  • Examples and Illustrations of differences in Evaluation and Revenue Recognition 
  • to help develop an understanding of the process and requirements of switching from GAAP to IFRS

Learning Objectives

  • To analyze the “Principles” approach of IFRs vs. the “rules approach of GAAP
  • To determine how to apply asset valuation principles of IFRS
