    The basic assumptions of accounting provide a foundation for recording the transactions and preparing the financial statements. There are two main assumptions of accounting: Monetary unit assumption and Economic entity assumption (Weygandt, J. J., Kimmel, P. D., & Kieso, D. E. (2008)).

    • 8 Pages

    The Financial Reporting Council decided in 2002 that Australian would move to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) in 2005. Prior to that, Australia had its own standard-setting processes. The introduction of IFRS in Australia replaced the original accounting standards and brought several brand new standards. Until now, Australia was the first country with a tradition of its own standard-setting to implement international accounting standards for general purposes. Therefore, the adoption is unexpected and controversial. This essay mainly focuses on the negative side of this accounting standard conversion, which points out a number of potentially serious problems that should be considered when IFRS has been adopted since 2005. The analysis is basically separated into four sections: the cultural influence, cost increment, impacts on domestic companies and impacts on the accounting policies. According to the analysis, conclusion can be reached that the adoption of IFRS has a great influence on Australian economy.…
