- “Many in the USA assume IFRS is not widely used in the USA. That’s a false narrative. IFRS is used in the USA by subsidiaries owned by non-USA companies, it’s used for filings with the SEC for foreign companies dual-listed in the USA and private companies in the USA have the choice if they desire to use IFRS.
Cecil brings it to life with solid examples and also helps readers understand why accounting fuels the economies of the world through confidence and capital flows.”
— Barry Melancon, AICPA President
- “Cecil is always ahead of the curve, writing and speaking in an understandable way, about the most relevant topics in the profession. In his latest book, he combines IFRS and U.S. GAAP into one unique resource. For any CFO or accounting professional dealing with international accounting and tax issues, Global Accounting: 2021 & Beyond is a must-have guide.”
