IFRS and US GAAP - similarities and differences

Category: MASTER COURSE

The course will compare and contrast US GAAP and IFRS, focusing on significant differences and how they are likely to be resolved in the future.

The adoption of international financial reporting standards (IFRS) across more and more countries represents a significant step forwards as we move towards a truly global set of financial reporting standards.

However, it will be some years before IFRS and US GAAP are fully converged. The course will compare and contrast US GAAP and IFRS, focusing on significant differences and how they are likely to be resolved in the future. 

Who should attend?
