IFAC urges G20 to call for global adoption of IFRSs and ISAs

  • IFRS - IFAC Image

Aug 25, 2016

On August 25, 2016, the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) has submitted recommendations for endorsement by the Group of Twenty (G-20) during their meeting in China on September 4-5, 2016.

IFAC believes that it is crucial for the G-20 to restore trust and increase transparency globally.

More specifically, IFAC calls on the G-20 to address:

  • Strengthening governance, which in both the public and private sectors is at the heart of accomplishing the G-20 objectives of recovery, growth, and stability, as well as combatting fraud and corruption and restoring public trust and integrity.
  • Promoting and adopting principles for good regulation to create a more consistent, effective international regulatory environment.
  • Acknowledging the importance of international standards across all jurisdictions, including international standards for accounting, auditing and assurance, professional ethics and education, and public sector accounting.
