IFRS Primer: International GAAP Basics

Paperback
Canadian public companies will have to follow International Financial Reporting Standards as of January 1, 2011. The IFRS Primer: International GAAP Basics serves as a roadmap to provide guidance and a path through the period of transition for both students and instructors. The IFRS Primer covers an introduction to IFRS basics and is a stand-alone volume, which is a logical supplement for use with existing Canadian or U.S. introductory, intermediate and advanced financial accounting textbooks. While the chapter content does not directly discuss differences between Canadian accounting standards and IFRS or U.S. standards and IFRS, chapter icons identify where there are significant differences and an appendix explains the major differences.
