ABSTRACT: This case is designed as a comprehensive review of significant differences between accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S.GAAP) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for specific topics covered during most Intermediate Accounting courses. The task requires you to analyze and evaluate a company’s significant accounting policies for compliance with IFRS as you plan and conduct the conversion of a firm’s financial statements from U.S. GAAP to IFRS. The skills developed throughout this case are currently in high demand as IFRS is quickly becoming the global norm in accounting standards and many multinational companies based in the U.S. are already affected by these standards. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has developed a roadmap that may require U.S. companies to begin adopting IFRS in 2015. You will be tested on your knowledge of IFRS on the CPA exam. The case is presented in two phases, allowing you to experience the conversion process from planning to execution.

This is Chris Gilmore’s first week working as an accountant at Ruckman, Inc. The controller of the corporation, Martha Green, selected Chris from numerous qualified candidates, in part because he had learned International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) while earning his Master of Accountancy degree. Chris’s responsibilities, as described during the interview process, include reviewing the financial statements of the company’s foreign subsidiaries, preparing the consolidated financial statements, and assisting the corporation in converting its financial statements from accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) to International Financial Reporting Standards for reporting to its European stakeholders. Chris has spent the early part of the week familiarizing himself with the company’s operations, as well as its accounting policies and practices.
