US - Center for Audit Quality offers guide on IFRS

The Center for Audit Quality (CAQ), which is affiliated with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), has developed a Guide to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The CAQ developed the Guide to IFRS in recognition of the timeline in the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed IFRS roadmap and the critical decisions that must be made regarding the use of global accounting standards in the US. The Guide will provide investors, policymakers and other capital market stakeholders with a timely, accessible and objective introduction to the debate over a single set of high-quality global accounting standards.
