Kuvaus

IFRS reporting is mandatory for EU listed companies but it also affects other than listed companies through conforming national legislation and through IFRS for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

IFRS Now focuses on the essence of the standards explaining their logic, shortcomings including Finnish practices and possible differences from American standards (US GAAP). The book also portrays the coming development of IFRS and the oversight of the actual practice of IFRS reporting.

The book is intended for accounting students as well as company decision makers who are responsible for the IFRS financial statements, but who do not need to familiarize themselves with all IFRS reporting details (CEO, CFO, audit committee members). The book has an English–Finnish vocabulary.

***

Englanninkielinen IFRS Now – In the light of US GAAP and Finnish practices tarjoaa hyvän pohjan ymmärtää IFRS-raportoinnin ja -standardien lähtökohdat, tavoitteet ja perusperiaatteet. Kirja keskittyy IFRS-raportoinnin kokonaisvaltaiseen ymmärtämiseen. Lukuisten yritysesimerkkien avulla IFRS-standardien monimutkaisemmatkin sisällöt avautuvat lukijalle.

IFRS Now tarjoaa hyödyllistä tietoa yritysten päätöksentekijöille, jotka ovat vastuussa IFRS-tilinpäätöksistä. Se soveltuu erinomaisesti esimerkiksi toimitusjohtajille, talousjohtajille ja muille talousasioista yleisellä tasolla vastaaville johtajille. Myös hallituksen tarkastusvaliokunnan jäsenten on hyödyllistä tuntea IFRS-raportoinnin perusteet.

Teos on englanninkielinen, mutta keskeisten termien suomenkieliset vastineet esitetään tekstissä johdonmukaisesti. Kirjan lopusta löytyy kattava englanti–suomi-sanasto, josta on erityistä hyötyä toimittaessa suomenkielisessä liiketoimintaympäristössä.
