The book provides a unique practical introduction to the international standards, outlining how these standards are used on a daily basis by companies in the preparation of their financial statements. The author examines the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure requirements of each IFRS and IAS and every attempt has been made to explain the standards as clearly and concisely as possible.
