...The Road to IFRS in India A practical guide to IFRS 1 and first-time adoption The Road to IFRS in India - A practical guide to IFRS 1 and first-time adoption 2 Introduction The Road to IFRS International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is fast becoming the global accounting language. Over 100 countries have now adopted IFRS and many more have committed to make the transition in the next few years. The benefits of global standards are widely acknowledged. For companies, however, the conversion to IFRS is a major change both for the finance function and for the wider business. The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has recognised the need for guidance. In 2003 it published IFRS 1 First-time adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS 1). IFRS 1 covers the application of IFRS in a company's first IFRS financial statements. It starts with the basic premise that an entity applies IFRS for the first time on a fully retrospective basis. However, acknowledging the cost and complexity of that approach, it then establishes various exemptions in areas where retrospective application would be too burdensome or impractical. IFRS convergence in India India is one of the largest jurisdictions that is currently going through the process of convergence with IFRS. Considering the diversity and complexity amongst Indian Companies that will transition to IFRS reporting, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has announced a roadmap which......

...IFRS Income Tax Accounting IFRS for SMEs: A less taxing standard? On July 9, 2009, the IASB published the International Financial Reporting Standard for Small and Medium-sized Entities (“IFRS for SMEs” or “the standard”), a self-contained standard of about 230 pages designed to ease the burden of IFRS reporting for entities that do not have public accountability. Globally, more jurisdictions may be encouraged to replace existing local GAAP with IFRS for SMEs. As a result, it holds important implications for US companies with multinational subsidiaries. The United Kingdom Accounting Standards Board (UK ASB), for example, has already issued a Consultation Paper asking for comments on its proposal to replace existing UK GAAP with IFRS by 2012. 2 PricewaterhouseCoopers Overview of Income Tax Accounting Treatment The Income Tax section of IFRS for SMEs contains several key provisions from the IASB’s Exposure Draft to amend IAS 12 Income Taxes (the “Exposure Draft”). For example, IFRS for SMEs includes the guidance in the Exposure Draft for tax basis, uncertain tax positions and the use of a valuation allowance. IFRS for SMEs also includes several provisions from the existing standard, such as intraperiod allocation, tax rates to apply to distributions and balance sheet classification. A closer look at the provisions in the standard provides insight into the potential for increased complexity and diversity in some areas. Tax basis Under IFRS for SMEs, the......

...The mission and goal of IASB was to provide a sustainable framework in that members of different nations can follow called the IFRS. IFRS is presented to profit-oriented entities whiter private or public; which is the development of a single set of high quality, understandable and enforceable global accounting standards. In doing so, financial reporting will be leveled, and international transactions as well as investors can assure their decisions and provide statements under fair value measurement. The collaboration of FASB and IASB, will be one of the most important changes in financial reporting to take place in years; best of both worlds as I would like to call it. The convergence of US GAAP to IFRS will bring have a major impact in our financial system. Accountants and regulatory bodies from all over the world are advocates of the convergence to IFRS; The SEC if fully supporting the adoption and believes that the convergence will not only simplify financial reporting but will beneficial for US investors. Since the SEC is main commander in this decision it has provided a roadmap in allowing US companies to begin using IFRS framework in preparing financial statements. There hasn't been a specific launch date, but it was mentioned that by 2015; the convergence should be finalized. As business continue going global and relations with other countries are essential for our world economy; financial reporting and the adoptiion of a single set of accounting standards......

...ABSTRACT First Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards sets out the procedures that an entity must follow when it adopts IFRS for the first time as the basis for preparing its general purpose financial statements. An entity may be first adopter if, in the preceding year, it prepared IFRS financial statements for internal management use, as long as those IFRS financial statements were not made available to external parties such as investors or creditors. In Malaysian data, IFRS standards are yet to be implemented. However, the results are of significant benefit for local standard setters as well as for other emerging countries that have similar capital market and institutional characteristics. More research could be conducted in other environments so that the impact of IFRS adoption in different environments can be revealed. Furthermore, additional studies can also consider other attributes of earnings quality such as earnings conservatism, predictability, comparability, persistence and timeliness.

Moreover, there has been significant globalisation of production and trade. Investors can trade shares and securities worldwide. Entities are in a position to access the funds globally in the most advantageous markets. For this, investors from all over the world rely upon financial statements before taking decisions. They need to be convinced that the financial statements are true and fair and what they understand from the statements is what the person preparing them intends to convey. However, different countries adopt different accounting treatments and disclosure patterns with respect to the same economic event. This may create confusion among the users while interpreting the financial statements. Financial statements that are based on a single, universally accepted and used GAAP will enable the world to exchange financial information in a meaningful and trustworthy manner. This will accelerate the globalisation of finance. Adoption of IFRS worldwide and in India The use of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as a universal financial reporting language is gaining momentum across the globe. Several countries have implemented IFRS and converged their national GAAP to IFRS. More than 100......

...Comparing IFRS to GAAP Kerry Pettit ACC/291 October 25, 2015 Cameo Christopher Comparing IFRS to GAAP IFRS 8-1: IFRS and GAAP are similar when it comes to basic accounting and reporting issues that connect. With identification and measurement of allowance accounts, accounts receivables, recording discounts, and the reduction process to account for bad debt and factoring. However, FASB (Financial Accounting Standards Board) and IASB (International Accounting Standards Board) have taken steps to implement fair value measurement to financial instruments. As a result opposing factors, FASB and IASB have adopted a fragmentary approach. The first step the two have taken is disclosing the appropriate use information in the notes. Step two is the adoption of the fair market alternative that allows companies to record some financial instrument at fair value in financial statements (Kimmel, 2013). The third step is acknowledging the complexity and universality of recognizing the area of revenues in fiscal reporting. FASB and IASB have also collaborated in the development of a new single revenue recognition standard. Both FASB and IASB are of the opinion that transparency and comprehension of financial statements can increase if companies record and report all financial instruments at fair value. Some of the criticism on both FASB and IASB is that they represent a split model. The critics claim that some financial instruments state at fair value. Some loans and receivables......

...IFRS In a perfect, ideal world, financial statements would be consistent for market participants to easily understand, regardless of location. In reality, there are people that exist that have put that idea into real-life action. These people are known as the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). IASB formed in 2001 with a commitment to develop “a single set of high quality global accounting standards that provide high quality, transparent and comparable information in general-purpose financial statements.” The IASB developed the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), which is the light at the end of the tunnel that provides a globally recognized set of Standards for financial statement preparers. Consistent with the IASB’s vision, the mission of IFRS is to bring transparency, accountability, and efficiency to financial markets all over the world. Ideally, investors are enabled to make sound economic decisions from transparency, which arises from enhancing international comparability as well as the quality of information for financial statements. Extending the quality of information goes hand in hand with decreasing the information gap – in turn providing regulated accountability to investors. Bringing a uniform trusted accounting language to investors increases economic efficiency through lowering both international reporting costs and cost of capital. These accomplishments are developed and made possible from the IASB, which consists of......
