A Comparison of the International Financial Reporting Standards and the United States Accounting Standards

The convergence of the American accounting standards with the rest of the world is an important breakthrough towards developing a consistent and reliable set of rules across the world. The costs and confusion of preparing accounting results under one regime and then translating these results to another regime has created a lot of problems and disharmony in the past and has almost certainly reduced the quality of information that the shareholder/investor needs. The potential for confusion was recently highlighted, during the credit crunch when, investors discovered to their horror that certain financial institutions were able to report financial profits at a time when they were asking various governments for financial support to cover the hidden losses that they had amassed.
