International Financial Reporting Standards
(IFRS) is a globally accepted set of accounting standards and interpretations established by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). IFRS has already been adopted by many countries in Asia and Europeand is rapidly gaining acceptance in the remaining key markets. Countries such as Canada, Brazil, India, Korea and Japan will be adopting IFRS by 2011 or shortly thereafter, while the SEC is proposing a roadmap requiring IFRS adoption between 2014 and 2016 – with selected early adopters by 2010.

What are the key business drivers for conversion to IFRS? A set of consistent accounting standards and disclosure requirements; a uniform measurement system; additional capacity to grow and expand through greater access to capital markets; and market recognition for providing more transparent information, potential for lower cost of capital and improved credit ratings.

Adoption of IFRS will be one of the most significant changes that publicly traded companies will have to deal with over the next few years. Conversion to IFRS is much more than an accounting compliance issue and can impact many areas throughout an organization. IFRS may have significant overlap and cross-dependencies with an SAP implementation, financial reporting and consolidationand performance management projectsand will have an impact from annual 404 Compliance signoff related to internal controls changes for SEC registrants. From a pure business perspective, addressing fair value requirements, inventory valuation, revenue recognition, asset component accounting, share based payments and asset impairment typically require additional data, processes and systems to address.
