MCAD/MCAE Industry View – A November 2010 Update


Despite such delay, the US government's acknowledgment of the need for a single set of high-quality global standards, in addition to the continuing globalization of capital markets, suggest that IFRS (not US GAAP) will eventually become the new global standard.

Most likely the end result will be a convergence of US GAAP and IFRS standards. In the meantime, many US companies and their investors will see, among other things, major changes in financial statements. The impact of the accounting changes caused by convergence will go beyond mere financial reporting. Tax policy, mergers and acquisitions, financial planning, systems requirements, and compensation structures are just some of the areas that will be affected. Get familiar with it; it's coming fast! Who said accounting was dry and boring?
