Wiley IFRS 2015: Interpretation and Application of International Financial Reporting Standards


Your indispensable Guide to IFRS® compliance

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS®) have received increased attention since such signal events as endorsements by the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) in 2000, by the European Union in 2002 (mandating universal adoption by publicly held companies in 2005), and by the SEC (waiving reconciliation requirements for foreign private issuers using IFRS® starting in 2007).

With further refinements to IFRS® by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) resulting in changes on a yearly basis, and given the now virtually unstoppable momentum worldwide to adopt (or, in some cases, adapt) IFRS®, mastery of this knowledge is a necessity for all preparers of financial statements.

Wiley IFRS® 2015 provides a complete and up-to-date explanation of all IFRS® requirements, coupled with examples of how to apply the rules in complex, real-world situations. It can be used to train accounting staff, and to serve as a reference guide during the implementation of IFRS® and preparation of IFRS®-based financial statements. Wiley IFRS® 2015 is equally valuable for preparers, auditors, and users of financial reports.

Key concepts are illustrated throughout, using worked examples and selections from actual published financial statements. Also included are a comprehensive disclosure checklist and integrated discussions of major ongoing IASB projects that may have significant impact on readers' responsibilities over the coming year.
