Over 100 countries have already converged to IFRS including the Eurozone, Switzerland, UK, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.

Companies that are due to begin their IFRS conversion projects over the next couple of months could be underestimating the full extent of what this entails. In the worst case scenario, this could lead to financial results being restated and, with the world’s financial markets currently so delicately poised, such a flurry of activity could prove damaging.

In Canada, the TSE will require IFRS beginning Jan. 1, 2011. As well, all publically accountable entities in Canada are scheduled to make the move to IFRS on the same date.

In the US, the SEC has released the Roadmap for comment.
