Argentina requires IFRSs starting 2012
Jan 04, 2010
Argentina's Comisión Nacional de Valores (CNV, the National Securities Commission, an agency of the Argentine Ministry of Economics and Public Finance) has adopted a requirement that all companies that publicly offer equity or debt securities must prepare their financial statements using IFRSs, beginning with financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2012.
Companies may voluntarily file their financial statements in accordance with IFRSs starting in January 2011. Argentine companies that are currently preparing IFRS financial statements on a supplemental basis may adopt IFRSs starting in 2010. The new requirements were adopted by Resolución General No. 562 (Spanish, PDF 509k – also available on CNV's website here).
