Understanding IFRS for SMEs introduces the fundamental accounting principles required to understand and apply the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for Small and Medium-sized Entities (SMEs). This book uses an easy-to-understand conceptual approach to explain the requirements for preparing financial statements in accordance with IFRS for SMEs. The explanations are supported by source references that direct readers to the text as written in the standard. In addition, illustrative examples show how the underlying concepts are operationalised in the practice of accounting. Although the text is designed to provide guidance to those wishing to understand IFRS for SMEs, it refers to the full IFRS standards where appropriate, so that those readers who want to compare the requirements in the two IFRS standards may be able to do so.
