According to www.irfs.com, International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are a set of accounting standards developed by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) that is becoming the global standard for the preparation of public company financial statements. According to USA Today, the adoption of IFRS is inevitable and those who do not start to adopt these principles will fall behind. According to Christopher Cox of the SEC, the move would be "a revolutionary development that will streamline global reporting standards” (www.usatoday.com). The advantage to adopting IFRS is that we would be on the same standards as our foreign competitors. This would eliminate having to be in compliance with two set of standards and would make the financial reporting easier for companies (www.ifrs.com).
