IFRS Webinar Examines Comparability
The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Foundation has published a webinar on improving the comparability of international financial reporting.
Standards aim to promote accountability, transparency and efficiency in financial markets around the world – and one key way they do that is through facilitating the comparison of reports. Comparable financial reporting leads to better analysis of investment opportunities and a more truly transparent reporting environment.
The webinar discusses the IFRS perspective on comparability, including research into the impact of accounting diversity between countries and companies. Consistency is essential for comparability – both between entities and over time – and IFRS research discussed in the webinar has examined the impact of policy choices on consistency and comparability. The webinar also features research into the relationship between compliance and comparability.
