WILEY IAS 2004 1e : Interpretation and Application of International Accounting Standards 2004
Wiley IAS 2004 is the compact yet truly comprehensive quick-reference guide that accountants can depend on to assist in the understanding and preparing of financial statements presented in accordance with IAS/IFRS. This new edition includes complete coverage of all the standards and interpretations issued or revised by the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC), as well as the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). In addition, excerpts taken from published financial statements of companies around the globe reporting under IAS illustrate practical applications of the standards and provide comprehensive examples of footnote disclosures. Furthermore, appendices to the book incorporating illustrative financial statements presented under IAS/IFRS, an IAS/IFRS checklist, and a table outlining comparisons of the salient provisions of IAS/IFRS to both U.S. GAAP and UK GAAP requirements enhance the practical utility of this book. EU companies required to switch to IFRS in 2005 will find practical "how-to" advice and implementation guidance on IFRS 1, First-Time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards. In addition, the book offers in-depth coverage of the latest changes made to extant standards by the IASB’s "Improvements Project," which will become effective in 2005.
