New York, NY (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
The transition around the world to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is the most important accounting development in decades. Currently all of Europe and over 100 other countries require or permit the use of IFRS, and many more are in the process of doing so.
The SEC is considering incorporating IFRS into the U.S. financial reporting system. If implemented, this could affect over 12,000 public corporations and up to one million preparers and users of U.S. financial statements.
At the January 10 NYSSA International Financial Reporting Conference, leaders from the IASB and FASB—as well as 18 other important representatives from government, business and finance—will share the latest news about IFRS and the global debate on international accounting harmonization. This conference will also zero in on the needs and concerns of the investment community with regards to financial reporting issues, and will include a technical update session on major FASB and IASB projects. Senior speakers from multinational corporations will also give their views on the IFRS debate, as well as commenting on their ability to meet the needs of financial statement users.
