Learning Objectives:

On completion of this course, you will have a greater understanding of:

  • the international context of IFRS and US GAAP
  • the similarities and differences in accounts format
  • the key accounting similarities between IFRS and US GAAP
  • the key accounting differences between IFRS and US GAAP

Course Duration: 1.5 hours
This course does not offer CPE credit but does count as CPD for CIMA members.

The two key players in a significant amount of financial reporting development are undoubtedly the IASB and the FASB. The course provides a comparison of the two reporting frameworks in terms of general reporting requirements and specific accounting treatments. This course will therefore provide a useful context with which to understand current development and create an awareness of the financial reporting challenges for groups with component reporting under each of the frameworks.
