Designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to appraise underlying accounting concepts and apply extant International Accounting Standards (IASs) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) this 6th edition has been fully updated and revised to reflect the requirements of all IASs and IFRSs, together with the revised Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting issued in March 2018. It includes questions and extensive worked examples on these standards and, innovatively, highlights key differences between IASs/IFRSs and FRS 102 The Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

International Financial Accounting and Reporting is particularly suitable for the intermediate and advanced levels of undergraduate accounting degree programmes, together with postgraduate and professional courses.

Key features of the 6th Edition include:

  • the adoption of the March 2018 version of the Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting;
  • consideration of the implications of FRS 102;
  • discussion of accounting and professional ethics (with related questions and solutions);
  • the adoption of IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customersand IFRS 16 Leases;
  • eight chapters that deal comprehensively and specifically with accounting for business combinations;
