The concept

We are aware that executives, practitioners and auditors, seek more than the content and regulated application of any International Financial Reporting Standard. They strive to gain an insight into the logic of each Standard, its background i.e. the reason for its issuance, and the justification of alternative treatments. Lack of knowledge on these areas, may have a material adverse effect on the quality and relevance of financial reporting.

Stakeholders may find on this website, state of the art information related to current IFRS issues, demystifying complicated areas of compliance and reference, and analyses of areas addressed by multiple Standards and the Framework.  Its purpose is not to be “just one more source of IFRS info”. We strive to help the financial reporting community make real sense of IFRSs and assist them to develop the necessary skills in order to add real value when acting as preparers, analysts, or auditors of financial statements.

The content is provided free of charge and there is a Q&A section where stakeholders may look-up resolved issues addressed.
