I’m trying to study for my Accounting course and I need some help to understand this question.
IFRS vs. US GAAP essay guidelines
A major issue has surfaced in recent years relating to the similarities and differences between US GAAP and IFRS. Currently, the majority of countries in the world follow IFRS guidelines; however, the United States still uses GAAP.
You are asked to write a paper regarding the similarities and differences between US GAAP and IFRS.
The main difference between GAAP and IFRS is that GAAP is considerably rule-based, whereas IFRS is more principal-based which means IFRS has room for interpretation. The specific differences are far too many to cover in a short presentation, however, you are only asked to choose two topics and do the comparison. Potential topics are listed below:
1.Measurement of inventory.
5.Cash flow statement
You should follow APA guidelines for format. APA guideline can be found at:
