SYNOPSIS: The Financial Reporting Policy Committee of the Financial Accounting and Reporting Section of the American Accounting Association (hereafter, the AAA FRPC or the committee) is charged with responding to discussion memoranda and exposure drafts on financial accounting and reporting issues. This response is to the SEC’s proposed rule, Roadmap for the Potential Use of Financial Statements Prepared in Accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) by U.S. Issuers. Based on a review of the literature, the AAA FRPC has concluded that a move to an international set of financial reporting standards is a desirable goal. We have also concluded that continued convergence of U.S. GAAP with IFRS by joint relations between the International Accounting Standards Board (hereafter, IASB) and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (hereafter, FASB) is preferable to near-term adoption of IFRS as a strategy for convergence.
