Location:  Phoenix Airport Hilton Hotel  2435 S 47th Street Phoenix
Speaker Darin Andreas, CPA,   Intel Technical Accounting Policy Manager

“IFRS Observations and Application”

US GAAP and IFRS convergence and conversion was at the forefront of accounting hot topics during the early development of the revenue, financial instruments, and leases standards.  These standards are now issued and application of US GAAP and IFRS moves forward.

Application of US GAAP and IFRS with some convergence and without conversion requires consideration of US reporting and statutory reporting for entities that are under IFRS reporting requirements.  In situations where the reporting is not converged practical application considerations are required.

During this session, you will learn about IFRS applications and engage in a discussion of examples of application of US GAAP and IFRS.
