Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will answer questions related to IFRS financial statements and compare them to GAAP based statements using numbers from examples that come from every-day life. The course will also analyze the four key principles of IFRS and the cash flow statement, and discuss using financial statement notes to decode the numbers.

"Analyzing IFRS Financial Statements - What’s the Difference?" - This course is approved by NASBA (National Association of State Boards of Accountancy). Attendees of Live Webinar are eligible for 1.2 CPE credit up on full completion of the course.

Why Should You Attend:

This webinar will help attendees recognize the significant differences between IFRS financial statements and GAAP financial statements. They will also learn a consistent method of comparing successfully with the two methods of accounting.

Although the focus will be on the two main differences which are asset valuation and revenue recognition rules, the cash flow statement will also be examined in detail to provide a quick way of assessing a company’s ability to survive, pay its bills, and even grow.

Further, attendees will be able to look at GAAP and IFRS financial statements to facilitate making economic decisions such as investing and lending. In addition, by looking at practical examples that highlight the fundamental differences introduced by IFRS, they will learn a unique approach to assessing a company’s cash flow and its subsequent ability to pay its bills.

  • How do you compare the old GAAP statements with the new IFRS statements?
  • What about volatility in the valuation of significant assets? How does it affect bank financing and collateralization?

Topic Background:

The adoption of IFRS is resulting in some significant changes when it comes to analyzing financial statements. For example, how do you compare the old GAAP statements with the new IFRS statements? Do the new asset valuation methods affect the asset values that are recorded at historical cost on the balance sheet? How do changes in asset value affect the balance sheet? Do they affect the amount of depreciation being recognized on the income statement? What about changes in value year to year? These are all important considerations when lenders and investors are making economic decisions whether to lend to or invest in a company.

What about volatility in the valuation of significant assets? How does it affect bank financing and collateralization? Lending institutions base their loan to asset ratios on depreciated asset amounts that are rely on stable historical costs. Will lines of credit vary according the changing values of assets that are the basis for issuing loans? Does the volatility change the amount of perceived risk?

If a business combination occurs, how are assets transferred? At historical cost? At depreciated cost? At current market value? Are there assets that do not get transferred from a GAAP statement to a new IFRS statement as a result of the business combination? Are there some assets that are not recognized on the balance sheet Are there some new assets that added onto the IFRS balance sheet that were not on the GAAP balance sheet? If goodwill is a result of a business combination from a GAAP accounting environment to an IFRS environment, how is it evaluated and recorded? What are the rules going forward for reevaluating the impairment of goodwill on a year-to-year basis?

How does the change from GAAP to IFRS modify the requirements for the notes to the financial statements? Are more details explaining the effects of the change needed? If yes, what format should be used? To what extent is both subjective and quantitative information used in the notes? This webinar will address these questions and more.
