On almost every page, the book addresses every accounting topic from the perspective of IFRS while still highlighting key differences between IFRS and US GAAP. Following the reputation for accuracy, comprehensiveness, and currency, the authors have painstakingly created a book dedicated to assisting students learning intermediate accounting topics under the rules of IFRS.
Reflecting the demands for entry-level accountants, the focus of this book is on fostering critical thinking skills, reducing emphasis on memorisation and encouraging more analysis and interpretation by requiring use of technology tools, spreadsheets and databases.
