Course Description

Consolidated financial statements are prepared by using uniform accounting policies for like transactions and events in similar circumstances for all of the entities in a group. These are the significant differences between U.S. GAAP and IFRS with respect to consolidations.

In general, the consolidation of financial statements requires a company to integrate and combine all of its financial accounting functions together in order to create consolidated financial statements that show results in the standard balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement reporting.
