Often, companies are required to prepare financial statements on the basis of accounting referred to as Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (U.S. GAAP). There are two mainstream frameworks driving the majority of the basis of accounting: U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

  • Used primarily in the United States, U.S. GAAP is a rule-based accounting standard.
  • Used in more than 110 countries around the world, IFRS is a more principle-based standard.

At CKH, our team of qualified accountants will assist you in the preparation of both U.S. GAAP and IFRS-compliant financial statements. Through our network of firms, we’re able to assist you with the compilation of financial statements in the Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, adhering to the ruling local framework.

If your business requires reporting under U.S. GAAP, IFRS or both frameworks, CKH is ready to assist you. Contact us today.

Under governance of federal securities laws, public companies must submit quarterly and annual reports of consolidated financial position and earnings.

Businesses based in the U.S. must report financials in accordance with US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). For public companies with foreign interests within their group structures, local reporting frameworks may also apply that differ from the U.S. GAAP framework. CKH offers clients expert familiarity with U.S. GAAP and all forms of local GAAP reporting.

Not only do we reconcile your taxes across frameworks, we identify and mitigate reporting differences that may otherwise cause confusion. Through in-depth analysis of diverse reporting methodologies, we differentiate between a true framework difference and accounting errors or oversights. Our reconciliation process works in tandem with foreign tax accounting, where deferred tax implication caused by different frameworks are considered and accounted for.

More importantly, we use this expertise to help you interpret the true nature of any differences, remediating errors and clarifying discrepancies.
