Future of International Accounting Standards

As the world moves towards a global economy, corporations no longer raise capital exclusively through local stock exchanges and banks but obtain investment funds through international financial markets. This has created a need for International Accounting Standards. In 2001 the International Accounting Standards Board was formed to facilitate the convergence of disparate national accounting standards into international ones. This presentation will examine briefly the need for international accounting standards, the goals of the International Accounting Standards Board, the progress that has been made so far, and what the future holds
