The 2017 edition of International GAAP® has been fully revised and updated to:

  • Include a new chapter on the latest leases standard IFRS 16 (Leases) ? a joint standard issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) ? which is likely to affect all entities in all industries, and will result in more assets and liabilities being recognized on the statement of financial position
  • Explore the implementation issues arising as entities plan for the future adoption of IFRS 9 (Financial Instruments) and IFRS 15 (Revenue from Contracts with Customers), including those referred to the IFRS Transition Resource Group for Impairment of Financial Instruments and the Joint Transition Resource Group for Revenue Recognition
  • Address amended standards and new interpretations issued since the preparation of the 2016 edition
  • Explain the other initiatives that are currently being discussed by the IASB and by the IFRS Interpretations Committee, and the potential consequential changes to accounting requirements (e.g., insurance contracts, leases, financial reporting conceptual framework projects)
  • Provide insight on the many issues relating to the practical application of IFRS, based on the extensive experience of the guide authors in dealing with recent day-to-day issues
