To help auditors address reporting issues arising from the first-time adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards, the staff of the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) along with staff of professional accountancy bodies, national standard setters, and audit firms have prepared a series of key questions and answers.

IFAC has published the Q&As in a document entitled First Time Adoption of IFRSs – Guidance for Auditors on Reporting Issues. Click to download: The UK Auditing Practice Board has proposed similar guidance. Please see our news story of 30 August 2004.
