Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course focuses on contemporary development in financial accounting and the international harmonization process. IASB, and the EU are major players in the harmonization process of financial accounting, and they have specific implication in national contexts. On the one hand, accounts have to be suitable for the national context and on the other hand, financial accounting requirements must also be internationally useful. These dual requirements on accounting necessitate specific demands on the development of models and standards for financial accounting. As of 2005, all public companies in the EU use the IASB's accounting standards.
This implied new conditions for recognition in all EU Member States. Multinational companies must also handle financial accounting and contextual differences regarding their financial reporting, which are parts also covered in the course.
The course will provide participants with knowledge of accounting and reporting for international groups by introducing students to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) at an intermediate level.
