Who follows IFRS and why?
The primary goal of IFRS is to have a single set of high quality global accounting standards applied by all entities around the world. As the world is becoming “smaller” – with more and more cross border transactions and the flow of investments around the world – having a single set of applicable accounting rules is becoming more important.
In the UK there is currently a regulatory requirement for listed groups to follow IFRS. Other companies are able to choose between UK GAAP and IFRS. Historically most companies would stay with UK GAAP unless there was a good reason to diverge (perhaps they were planning an IPO). We are seeing an increasing trend for organisations to voluntarily adopt IFRS, maybe to attract inward investment or perhaps as they see it as best practice.
