Accounting Standards can vary widely from country to country, thus making comparisons of company accounts difficult. Other adverse effects can include higher than necessary preparation costs for multinational companies, who may have to prepare different reports on their operations for different countries. It is clear that such problems and inefficiencies are no longer acceptable either to investors or corporations in an increasingly globalised capital market. International Accounting Standards were written to harmonise all accounting standards throughout the world, improving the ability of investors, creditors, governments, and others to make informed resource allocation and policy decisions. The ISAC Standards are now accepted by almost all leading stock exchanges and many international companies are now preparing their accounts using them.
Using the text from the Standards themselves this book explains clearly and precisely the requirements and use of the Standards in a style that is acceptable to the accountant and non-accountant alike.

An indispensable guide to making the transition to dual IFRS/GAAP financial reporting
U.S. financial reporting will undergo an unprecedented level of change within the next several years. U.S. companies face a convergence between U.S. GAAP and IFRS, affecting several major accounting standards--most notably in the areas of leasing, revenue recognition, and financial instruments. It is imperative that U.S. companies understand these major changes and their business and operational implications. "The IFRS U.S. GAAP Dual Reporting Handbook to First-Time Adoption" offers a comprehensive treatment of both the principles and techniques of dual reporting under IFRS/U.S. GAAP, while exploring the practical implications for accounting professionals of reporting under both sets of standards.Takes an operating approach to the implementation and application of the dual standardsDraws upon the author's extensive firsthand experience to dispel uncertainty and offer decision makers expert technical assistanceDefines systemic changes businesses will need to make to accommodate IFRS standardsCompares the two bodies of standards item-by-item and identifies solutions under one set of standards to issues arising under the otherExplores the strategic impact of structuring a company for IFRS transition

PKF International brings together the expertise of their global team to create an indispensable guide to the interpretation and application of IFRS.
Accounting standards in the UK and Republic of Ireland are going through a radical change. This book outlines the changes concerned, how they affect companies, what differences exist between the new and the old rules and what practitioners and directors should be aware of in producing financial statements for statutory purposes. To aid this theory, numerous worked examples and illustrative model accounts are included to help preparers understand how these changes should be implemented. Practitioners and preparers of accounts need to be fully versed in the changes to accounting practice and the stumbling blocks to avoid under the new rules. Each chapter contains a 'Pitfalls to avoid' section as well as a 'Chapter summary' to help preparers to understand the key differences. Invariably, if the accounts themselves are incorrect due to a misunderstanding of the new treatments, the resulting tax will be incorrect. UK Financial Statements: Presentation and Disclosure Requirements provides a comprehensive overview of the new reporting regimes in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Written by an expert in UK company financial reporting issues, it includes illustrative financial statements, model disclosures and the structure of the primary statements under new UK GAAP and EU-adopted IFRS. The appendices also contain useful disclosure checklists.

This book looks at the 23 million registered Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) that make up 98 per cent of the EU economy. Addressing the high end of SMEs in terms of new models for SME funding and financial reporting, this merged way of looking at SMEs reveals a 'myopic' thinking in terms of net present value and (future) cash flows generating short-termism and low risk appetite for business. This is not an accounting issue, but rather a preference toward certain financial tools. A segment of SMEs, the ones that seek new ways of funding possibilities, as well as modern technologies (MTFs listing, blockchain, ICOs, etc.) do require, even without knowing, IFRS for SMEs. This book reveals how market conditions impact the financial performance and sustainability of SMEs and also generate innovative policy interventions and financing strategies for SME integrity and efficiency. The authors frame their arguments in the context of the Capital Markets Union, looking at the Innovation Triangle, SME growth ecosystem and business models. They conclude by advocating for closing the circle of financing and financial reporting for SMEs, while considering if new financial models of financing and financial reporting are good for all the SMEs or only for some. The economy is being shaped by new models of financing and financial reporting. Read this practitioners' view to understand the current changes and challenges.

Global capital markets are in a state of flux. Castigated in the past as Barbarians at the Gate, private equity providers are once again proclaiming the end of the public corporation. This important book addresses the implications of private equity for the governance of corporations, the capital markets in which they operate and the professionals who provide corporate advisory services. The book evaluates and ranks the precise nature of the risk posed by private equity by situating it within an overarching analysis of the dynamics of financial capitalism.The key issues addressed include: the management of conflicts of interest, fiduciary duties, the role of enforcement, the efficacy of adopting a rules- or principles-based system of regulation, the form and function of compliance, and a detailed examination of how to embed accountability into an integrity system for the financial markets. The book therefore has enormous benefit for industry, regulatory and academic communities alike.
The influence of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) on accounting across the world is stronger than ever. Most importantly, this stems from the mandatory adoption of IFRSs in many parts of the world, including Europe, Canada, Australia, Brazil and, with some relatively small exceptions, China. Additionally, foreign registrants in the US are also permitted to use IFRS by the SEC. The impact of IFRSs also extends to accounting developments as the IASB and the FASB work closely together to formulate new standards such as those recently issued on leasing and revenue recognition. It is clear that investors, analysts and valuers need to understand financial statements produced under IFRS to feed in to their valuations and broader investment decisions. Written by practitioners for practitioners, the book addresses valuation from the viewpoint of the analyst, the investor and the corporate acquirer. It starts with valuation theory: what is to be discounted and at what discount rate? It explains the connection between standard methodologies based on free cash flow and on return on capital. And it emphasizes that, whichever method is used, accurate interpretation of accounting information is critical to the production of sensible valuations. The authors argue that forecasts of cash flows imply views on profits and balance sheets, and that non-cash items contain useful information about future cash flows - so profits matter. The book addresses the implications for analysis, modelling and valuation of key aspects of IFRS, all updated for recent developments, including: - Pensions - Stock options - Derivatives - Provisions - Leases - Revenue recognition - Foreign currency The text also sets out the key differences between IFRS and US GAAP treatments of these issues, in addition to their implications for analysis. A detailed case study is used to provide a step-by-step valuation of an industrial company using both free cash flow and economic profit methodologies. The authors then address a range of common valuation problems, including cyclical or immature companies, as well as the specialist accounting and modelling knowledge required for regulated utilities, resource extraction companies, banks, insurance companies, real estate companies and technology companies. Accounting for mergers and disposals is first explained and then illustrated with a detailed potential acquisition.
