IFRS in your pocket
Today, the world’s capital markets know no borders. The participants in those markets need high quality, transparent, and comparable financial information to enable them to make sound economic decisions. For over 30 years, the International Accounting Standards Board and its predecessor, the International Accounting Standards Committee, have been working to develop, in the public interest, a single set of high quality, understandable, and enforceable International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) to serve equity investors, lenders, and other information users.
This eight edition of "IFRSs in your pocket," published in May 2009, is a terrific guide to help you know and understand IFRS and how they are being adopted around the world. This popular 124-page guide covers relevant IFRS issues. It includes, for example, summaries of each IASB Standard and Interpretation, as well as the Framework and the Preface to IFRSs.
