COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Accounting is in the process of adopting itself to globalization by developing International Financial
Reporting Standards (IFRS) but not without problems. Today there is a “rule-based vs. principlebased (objective-based)” accounting standards debate in the accounting circles; “uniform chart of
accounts vs. accounting standards” implementation in different countries; “local tax laws and
regulations based accounting vs. International Financial Reporting Standards” confusion among the
practitioners. Despite all of these issues hundreds of publicly held national and international
corporations, small and medium sized firms are preparing financial statements and reports for the
users in their jurisdictions.
The objective of the course is to provide the student in-depth coverage of International Financial
Reporting Standards (IFRSs) -- including International Accounting Standards (IASs) with underlying
rationale. Turkish tax rules and regulations as departed from IFRSs and IASs shall be referred to in
relation to implementation of IAS/IFRSs. The emphasis shall be on the recognition, measurement,
and disclosure of the transactions/events as well as interpretation of the financial statements.
