Accordingly, IFRS:

  • brings transparency by enhancing the international comparability and quality of financial information, enabling investors and other market participants to make informed economic decisions;
  • strengthens accountability by reducing the information gap between the providers of capital and the people to whom they have entrusted their money, and to regulators;
  • contributes to economic efficiency by helping investors to identify opportunities and risks across the world. For businesses, the use of a single, trusted accounting language lowers the cost of capital and reduces international reporting costs.
