Since IFRS have become widely accepted around the world, U.S. companies have been cognizant on the effects of a possible pending adoption. Among these are issues concerning the transition from GAAP to IFRS, tax reporting, tax accounting, and other matters pertaining to an organization’s financial reporting system. The question that arises now is, are U.S. companies ready to adopt these standards? And more importantly how would this scenario play out.
The Knowledge Congress is assembling a panel of distinguished experts and key regulators to help make this clear to all auditing firms and other related companies affected by this newly adopted standard. The panel will present their findings, which will include “Best Practices” in a two-hour webinar.
