The 2013 edition of the popular IFRS and US GAAP: Similarities and Differences guide is now available here. This publication is designed to improve your understanding of the major differences between International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (US GAAP).
For US preparers, public or private, big or small, knowledge of IFRS is important. Although a potential change to IFRS for US public companies is a longer-term vision, IFRS is increasingly relevant now to many US businesses as they engage in cross-border M&A, report to their non-US stakeholders, and manage their overseas operations. This year’s edition highlights the critical role of being financially “bilingual” in the US – fluent in both IFRS and US GAAP accounting standards. Beginning to prepare accounting students for this bilingual environment will be important to their long-term professional success without regard to whether the US, itself, adopts IFRS. PwC seeks to assist you in incorporating IFRS into your curriculum. We hope you find this publication a beneficial resource.
Worldwide Tax Summaries – Corporate Taxes 2013/14 is a useful reference tool.

Written by local PwC tax specialists in each country, this guide covers recent changes in tax legislation as well as key information about income taxes, residency, income determination, deductions, group taxation, credits and incentives, withholding taxes, indirect taxes, and tax administration, up to date as of June 2013.
