A warm welcome to the International Accounting Standards (AS) course by Uplatz.
Accounting Standards (AS) refer to the general guidelines and standards for financial reporting. A company's financial statements can be prepared using Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
An accounting standard is application to a company’s financial reporting. A few popular examples of accounting standards are segment reporting, goodwill accounting, an allowable method for depreciation, business combination, lease classification, a measure of outstanding share, and revenue recognition.
The Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), commonly referred as International Accounting Standards, are the primary accounting standards adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). GAAPs were designated in the United States and form the basis of accepted accounting standards for preparing and reporting financial statements across the world.
The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) provides rule-based and principle-based accounting guidelines for international companies that are based outside the U.S. The International Accounting Standards (IAS) are intended to achieve the uniformity of approach and identity of meaning. Accounting standards of a specific country are strongly influenced by its governance arrangement and tax policy.
In essence, an accounting standard is a common set of principles, standards and procedures that define the basis of financial accounting policies and practices. Accounting standards improve the transparency of financial reporting in all countries. In the United States, the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles form the set of accounting standards widely accepted for preparing financial statements. International companies follow the International Financial Reporting Standards, which are set by the International Accounting Standards Board and serve as the guideline for non-U.S. GAAP companies reporting financial statements.
Accounting Standards (AS) have the following characteristics, to name a few:
