This companion volume to Accounting for Investments Volume 1: Equities, Futures and Options starts from fixed income securities and interest rates. Accounting for Investments Volume 2 starts from the basics for the financial products covered, defining the product, the way it is structured, its advantages and disadvantages, the different events in the trade life cycle and then elaborates on the accounting entries that are necessary for the same. The book also explains how the entries get reflected in the general ledger accounts, giving a macro-level picture for the reader to understand the basics of the effect of such accounting. This volume is the presentation of the results in the final accounts—the income statement and balance sheet and disclosure requirements are also covered.

Accounting for Investments Volume 2 will prove useful to an expert as well as a novice, not to mention the ever-increasing number of technology consultants who require for such a book.

While generally accepted US accounting principles and the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are given adequate treatment, the readers are advised to refer to the appropriate GAAP requirements for their own country. The accounting standards that are dealt with here in the book can, however, be used as a benchmark to understand the specific requirements of
other countries.

Product Description

A one-stop resource for understanding current International Financial Reporting Standards
As the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) makes significant strides in achieving global convergence of accounting standards worldwide, the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) become extremely important to the accounting world. Wiley IFRS 2011 provides the necessary tools for understanding the IASB standards and offers practical guidance and expertise on how to use and implement them.

  • Covers the most recent International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and IFRIC interpretations
  • An indispensable guide to IFRS compliance
  • Provides a complete explanation of all IFRS requirements, coupled with copious illustrations of how to apply the rules in complex, real-world situations

Written by two well-known international experts on the subject with hands-on experience in applying these standards, this book is an indispensable guide to IFRS compliance.  

From the Back Cover

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS®) have received increased attention since such signal events as endorsements by the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) in 2000, by the European Union (2002, mandating universal adoption by publicly held companies in 2005), and by the SEC (waiving reconciliation requirements for foreign private issuers using IFRS® beginning in 2007, and establishing a “road map” for adoption by U.S. public companies by 2016).With further refinements to IFRS® continuing to be made by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB)—aided by work being performed pursuant to the “convergence” commitment made by the U.S. standard-setter, FASB—and given the now virtually unstoppable momentum worldwide to adopt (or, in some cases, adapt) IFRS®, mastery of this knowledge is becoming a necessity for all preparers of financial statements. Although only publicly held U.S. companies are facing an impending near-term mandate to convert to IFRS®, many private companies already are encountering requests or demands from their major customers, suppliers, joint venture partners, and affiliates to provide financial reports prepared under IFRS®. In all likelihood, replacement of U.S. GAAP by IFRS® will become a reality for even privately held enterprises within the foreseeable term. 

Experience from EU-based companies that implemented IFRS® financial reporting by 2005 suggests that such an undertaking may require a multi-year effort. Wiley IFRS® 2011 provides a complete explanation of all IFRS® requirements, coupled with copious illustrations of how to apply the rules in complex, real-world fact situations, and can be used both in training accounting staff and serving as a reference guide during actual implementation of IFRS® and preparation of IFRS®-based financial statements. Wiley IFRS® 2011 is equally valuable for preparers, auditors, and users of financial reports.To optimize the reader’s understanding, both examples created to explain particular IFRS® requirements and selections from actual published financial statements are provided throughout the book, illustrating all key concepts. Also included in this edition are a revised, comprehensive disclosure checklist; an updated, detailed comparison between U.S. GAAP and IFRS® , keyed to chapter topics; and integrated discussions of major ongoing IASB projects that may have significant impact on readers’ responsibilities over the coming year.
