The year 2011 will be a milestone in the history of global standard setting, when nearly 150 countries would adopt international standards for financial reporting to be issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). This extensively revised, fully updated, second edition includes a wide range of topics with a view to examining the increased challenges that will be faced by academicians, accounting and management professionals in the globally converging dynamic environment of accounting standards expected around 2011. The book is primarily intended as a text for postgraduate students of management (MBA) specializing in accounting and finance, postgraduate students of commerce (M.Com), financial studies, and international business (MIB). In addition, this text will be useful for professional courses offered by institutes such as the Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAI), the Institute of Cost and Works Accountants (ICWAI) and the Institute of Chartered Financial Analysts (ICFAI). Distinctive Features The text is supported by numerous problems and case studies. Comparative financial practices in selected countries are examined. The impact of global convergence of accounting practices on MNCs, accounting and finance professionals and academicians has been dealt with in a separate chapter. The chapter on Business Combinations and Consolidations examines the impact of the revised standard issued in 2007–2008, which dramatically changes the 50-year old method of accounting for mergers. Problems of transfer pricing for tangibles, intangibles, services and cost sharing arrangements have been analyzed in detail. Upcoming issues relating to accounting for financial derivatives, harmful global tax practices such as tax havens, preferential tax regimes and double tax avoidance conventions have been accorded detailed coverage.

From 2001 to 2011, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and its International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs), acquired a central position in the practice and regulation of financial reporting around the world. As a unique instance of a private-sector body setting standards with legal force in many jurisdictions, the IASB's rise to prominence has been accompanied by vivid political debates about its governance and accountability. Similarly, the IASB's often innovative attempts to change the face of financial reporting have made it the centre of numerous controversies. This book traces the history of the IASB from its foundation as successor to the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC), and discusses its operation, changing membership and leadership, the development of its standards, and their reception in jurisdictions around the world. The book gives particular attention to the IASB's relationships with the European Union, the United States, and Japan, as well as to the impact of the financial crisis on the IASB's work. By its in-depth coverage of the history of the IASB, the book provides essential background information that will enrich the perspective of everyone who has to deal with IFRSs or the IASB at a technical or policy-making level.
