You Say IFRS, I Say FASB…Let's Call the Whole Thing Off
Tickell, Geoffrey; Rahman, Monsurur; Alexandre, Romain
American Journal of Business Education, v6 n5 p505-512 2013
This paper discusses the noticeable nervousness of many US-based financial statement issuers in adopting IFRS. For contextual purposes, the paper provides an overview of the FASB/IFRS convergence so far and its probable future. A detailed review of convergence in accounting standards is explained through the respective standards for "Pensions and Other Post-Employment Benefits". The paper concludes by suggesting that, while one set of global steps is a noble goal, it might not achieve the desired goal of comparability.
