International Financial Reporting Standards have been mandatory
in the EU since 2005 and are rapidly being adopted by countries
throughout the world. In this environment it is increasingly
important for managers, executives and CEOs to understand the
background of the IFRS and their main requirements.
In "An Executive Guide to IFRS: Content, Costs and Benefits to
Business," Peter Walton provides a concise and accessible guide to
the principal features of IFRS, explains why they are useful, looks
at their impact on businesses, and provides some of the context to
help define their global role.
The book is divided into three sections. Part one deals with the
convergence process and its costs and benefits, and gives
background on the story so far. Part two contains the main
technical content of the book and provides an analysis of the main
issues under IFRS reporting, including:
- The content of financial statements- Investments in other
companies- Income Statement and Balance Sheet items- IFRS for SMEs-
A comparison with US GAAP
Part three covers the creation of the IFRS, provides details of
the IASB's standard-setting process, and describes how people
outside the IASB can participate in the process and lobby
effectively. It also examines the history of the IASB, and includes
a chapter based on the author's observation of the standard setters
"An Executive Guide to IFRS" is an invaluable resource for
anyone seeking to understand the essentials of International
Financial Reporting Standards.
