Year in review — 2015

  • Event — mid gray Image

Dec 30, 2015

US GAAP Plus turned two in September and we spent the year refining our content and devoting even more resources to bringing you comprehensive coverage of all things U.S. GAAP, IFRS, and other financial reporting topics.

We added the popular U.S. GAAP/IFRS comparisons, which highlight the key differences between the two sets of accounting standards for 19 subject areas (and counting!). Our overall visitor numbers grew ex­po­nen­tially and many visitors also followed our @De­loit­teAc­ctg Twitter handle to receive regular updates about the wealth of fi­nan­cial re­port­ing in­for­ma­tion in­cluded on US GAAP Plus and other Web sites.

Overall, our most popular pages remain our ac­count­ing stan­dards sum­maries, but we contin­ue to witness strong demand for our news, pub­li­ca­tions, re­source pages, and project sum­maries.
