Contemporary Global Accounting Topics Paper

For this assignment, research two contemporary accounting topics, such as valuing intellectual capital and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), and how these standards differ from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), and sustainability and environmental accounting.

If you would like to choose a different contemporary accounting topic not listed, email your instructor to obtain approval prior to starting your paper.

  • Define and describe the topics, citing real-life examples of their uses.
