During the past two years the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Singapore (ICPAS) has issued over a dozen new and revised accounting standards in their effort to harmonise the Singapore Statements of Accounting Standards (SAS) with IAS.

While SAS is largely equivalent to IAS, some major differences remain. Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu has published a Comprehensive Review of Recent Changes to Singapore Standards (PDF 270k). The book includes a table of remaining differences with IAS. Click here to go to our Singapore Page.
