Complete Technical Coverage

This book covers all the financial reporting competencies in the required depth as specified in the CPA Competency Map. This information helps the CPA candidates planning to write the CFE to link the coverage of financial reporting topics to the CPA educational requirements.

Emphasis on IFRS, ASPE and ASNPO

This book covers the financial reporting topics by referencing each topic to the specific standards in IFRS, ASPE and ASNPO. The coverage of each topic is in the same order presented in the CPA Canada Standards and Guidance Collection (Exam Reference) to facilitate cross reference to the Standards.

Key Differences between IFRS and ASPE

At the end of each topic, an individual IFRS and ASPE icon highlights the items that are treated differently by the two sets of standards in addition to a comparison table to clearly identify any significant differences. The joint IFRS-ASPE icon indicates a direct comparison between the two approaches.

Emphasis on Readability

The readability of the text has been improved by using fewer abbreviations, plainer language, shorter sentences, numbered lists and clearer headings. The key words and terms are highlighted in the text.

Effective Learning Techniques

Flowcharts identify and alert candidates to the major differences and similarities between different standards. Flowcharts facilitate the understanding and reciting of the standards in an easy and feasible way.

Superior Hints to Apply Standards

Throughout each topic, you are presented with tips and hints to apply the standards into cases in order to correctly apply the complex criteria in a practical and easy way. The Hint feature alerts candidates to remember how to learn and apply the standards.
