Any one please clarify me this….

Hi Team,
Will any one clarify the difference between Exceptional Items &
Extraordinary Items?
With reference to IFRS what is the disclosure policy for the both.
Thanks & Regards,

Hi Hari,
to my understanding according to IAS 1 there was for several years the
possibility to show extraordinary items in the P+L (IAS 1.85). Since
2004 this seems to be no longer allowed according to Dr. David
Grünberger who is member in the Accounting Regulatory Committee in
Brussels which decides upon the endorsement of new IAS/IFRS standards
within the EU. According to US-GAAP extraordinary items are …

If a company asks a third party to construct a fixed asset and at the end of the year, the fixed asset is not complete, but you have a statement of the costs incurred, would you capitalize the costs incurred under Construction in Progress with counterpart in accruals. Or would you record an entry only when it has been delivered to the company?
What IFRS would be applicable?


IFRS 16 would be applicable “Plant , Property and Equipemnt”

What are the diferences between the two accounting policies?

IAS was in use before the introduction of IFRS. With effect from the introduction of IFRS, only IAS before the introduction of IFRS is stil in use. Any other international standard that will be issued will now be IFRS but not IAS.

In my view except the change in nomenaclature there is no much difference in the basic strategy of the standardization process. Ofcourse prior to 2001 (1973-2001) IAS International Accounting Standards were used to be issued by the IASC (International Accounting Standards Committee) and …

Hello all!
We are currently assessing the impact of converting from our local GAAP to IFRS to prepare for a 2011 conversion. In this first diagnostic step, we hope to capture IFRS issues by account line item, divided into 4 main categories; accounting impact(disclosure and gap), system impact, business impact and people impact. (i.e. what would be the impact to the business on PP&E changes) We’re looking to bring in one of the major audit firms to guide us on this step. From this matrix, we hope to create a detailed …

Hi all,
whether intraday sale of shares is taxable as speculation business income or Business income for the financial year 2006-2007?

In the long run I plan to start a consulting firm focused on IFRS implementation and compliance. In the medium term I plan to get an international exposure particularly in South East Asian countries like Singapore, Malaysia etc. As Indian CA is not recognized as such in those countries I plan to take up international qualifications like ACCA or Singapore CPA although I still have to inquire whether it is possible to …
