Accounting Standards are the authoritative statements of best accounting practices issued by recognized expert accountancy bodies relating to various aspects of measurements, treatments and disclosures of accounting transactions and events, as related to the codification of GAAP.

The convergence to IFRS will greatly enhance the ability of Indian entities to raise and attract foreign capital at low cost.

The transition to the IFRS system impacts on the values of key financial ratios influences the assessment of the financial situations of firms, albeit it could not be proved that these differences are statistically significant.
