Wiley GAAP Codification Enhanced
By mid-2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) is expected to release its Accounting Standards Codification (ASC), a new, clearer indexing system that is much easier to access and research. Though the Codification does not change U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), it does reorganize the thousands of U.S. GAAP pronouncements from difficult-to-use chronological listings and multiple series of pronouncements into a single, easily accessible source conveniently organized by topic/subject.
Arriving at just the right time, Wiley GAAP Codification Enhanced contains complete coverage of all levels of GAAP, as well as integrated cross-references to the new ASC. In addition, Wiley GAAP Codification Enhanced renders GAAP more understandable and accessible for research and is designed to reduce the amount of time and effort you spend to solve accounting research issues.
Your authoritative guide to GAAP under the new codification system, this invaluable resource makes learning the new ACS system a breeze, with at-your-fingertips information that does the work for you. Practical and reliable, Wiley GAAP Codification Enhanced is your essential tool to navigate through these new, uncharted waters.
