Assignment: IFRS in China
Answer the following questions in essay form, based on the information presented in the case and your perspective from our class discussion.
- What are the benefits to China from adopting IFRS?
- How do you think China should proceed with its IFRS policy? In particular, is IFRS
“convergence” a better model for China than full adoption?
3. As an investor in China, what concerns, if any, will you have with financial reports
prepared under China’s IFRS-based standards? What steps would you want put in place to address those concerns? In other words, what do we need to make international accounting ‘work’ in China?”
4. What are the implications of this China scenario for the nature of IFRS globally? How should we think about setting accounting standards globally? What does it mean for a country to “adopt” IFRS?
Your response should be well organized, use appropriate business vocabulary, and should be free of punctuation, grammatical, or spelling errors. The response should have a clear and understandable narrative with good flow of thought, and connect the topics we discuss in class to the IFRS adoption decision in China. You must properly cite any references or sources.
Your response, in essay form, should be formatted as follows:
- Times New Roman font
- Font size 12
- Double space
- 1-inch margins
- Approximate 4-5 page response (excluding the references sheet)
