The American Institute of CPAs has published a book on how the top 100 international public companies use International Financial Reporting Standards as U.S. accounting standards converge slowly toward IFRS.

The book, “IFRS Accounting Trends & Techniques” has been written for management, financial statement preparers, investors, analysts, and academics to expand their understanding and awareness of International Financial Reporting Standards and the accounting policies of different industries around the world that already report using IFRS.

IFRS Accounting Trends & Techniques covers the experience of 100 companies — including major names like BP, Nokia, Siemens, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, Vodafone, Royal Dutch Shell and Telecom Italia — using IFRS. The companies are based in the UK, the Netherlands, Australia, South Africa, Russia and elsewhere, and are allowed by the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue financial reports in the U.S. using IFRS.
