IFRS Reporting and Resources
More than 100 countries have adopted International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), either as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board or as endorsed by a particular jurisdiction. SEC rule-making suggests that U.S. capital markets will likely have made the transition to IFRS within the next few years.
