The Q4 2007 issue of Insight, the IASB's quarterly journal, includes an article on IFRSs Going Global: Implications for the Profession.

The article has a number of comments from Ken Wild, Deloitte's Global Leader for IFRSs, including the following about the benefits of IFRSs:

The benefits are self-evident. The more investors and other stakeholders think that they understand something the more likely they are to provide money or invest in it. It all depends on how much confidence they have in the company and there will always be an element of doubt if the language is different.
