    This is an individual assessment task not a group project.
    It is designed to assist you in demonstrating your knowledge of, and ability to critically assess influences on a contemporary issue in financial reporting and disclosure. It also provides you with an opportunity to further enhance your research, judgement and written communication skills.
    Issue to be investigated:  Accounting standards
    There is growing debate regarding the use of principles-based accounting standards as opposed to rules-based accounting standards. Some commentators have argued that the principles-based International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) approach is better in terms of ensuring that financial information provided reflects the qualitative characteristics while others argue that the rules-based United States (US) Generally Acceptance Accounting Principles (GAAP) is better for comparability and consistency of financial information.
    A recently released KMPG (2015)report*provides an overview of IFRS and US GAAP and has revealed that there are significant differences between IFRS and US GAAP.
