Course Description

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are a framework of global accounting standards for organizations to make their financial reporting comparable across international boundaries. Although public companies in the United States have not yet adopted IFRS, many U.S. based organizations involved in foreign activities prepare their financial statements under IFRS. In this webinar, Matthew Briggson will walk through the history of IFRS, discuss considerations around first adopting the standards, and explain key similarities and differences with other frameworks, including U.S. GAAP. 

Learning Objectives
  • Identify the history of IFRS and adoption timeline for major jurisdictions around the world.
  • Recognize the impact of IFRS on U.S. businesses who have foreign activities.
  • Discover the key similarities and differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP.
