Do you know IFRS aka International Financial Reporting Standards is a set of accounting standards, similar to that you have US GAPP.

IFRS is already adopted in more than 110 countries as of now and countries like Canada, Brazil, India, Korea and Japan is planning for IFRS compliance by 2011. Check it out old post for details.

dgreybarrow So what in inside

IFRS are standards and interpretations adopted by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).

IFRS are considered “principles based” set of standards in that they establish broad rules as well as dictating specific treatments.

International Financial Reporting Standards(IFRS) comprise:

  • International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) – standards issued after 2001
  • International Accounting Standards (IAS) – standards issued before 2001
  • Interpretations originated from the International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee (IFRIC) – issued after 2001
  • Standing Interpretations Committee (SIC) – issued before 2001
  • There is also a Framework for the Preparation and Presentation of Financial Statements which describes some of the principles underlying IFRS.
