Ernst & Young Library of International Financial Reporting Standards
The move to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is the single most important initiative in the financial reporting world. Its impact stretches far beyond accounting to affect every key business decision, not just how it is reported. Access to up-to-date knowledge, insights and timely advice is essential. As IFRS becomes the financial reporting language in many more countries, consistent interpretation and application becomes ever more vital. We have developed the global resources — people and knowledge — to provide the benefit of our broad sector experience, our subject matter knowledge and the latest insights from our worldwide network.

The site, which is totally free of charge, has a broad array of resources about the International Accounting Standards Board and International Financial Reporting Standards. Free access is available at www.iasplus.com.
