Research Report

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

You work as a graduate for a large international accounting practice.

The Vietnamese government , through the Vietnamese Ministry of Finance (MoF) is considering the adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and have engaged your practice to advise them on whether (and, if so, how) to undertake adoption. The MoF has been lobbied by organisations both in support of and against the adoption of IFRS but would now like an impartial report, including recommendations.

One of the partners, Mr Stan Dard, has identified you as a promising graduate and has tasked you with writing the report. They request that you first provide a report plan (part 1) before completing the report (part 2).

The MoF have requested that the report contains (but is not necessarily restricted to) responses to the following aspects:

  1. Briefly outlining the origins, history and expansion of IFRS.
  2. Briefly providing the current and likely future position of IFRS globally in terms of coverage and alternative accounting rules in use.
  3. Arguments for and against fully adopting IFRS; what are the costs and benefits to Vietnamese firms, the Vietnamese government and other parties? A recommendation is required.
  4. If the MoF did decide to adopt IFRS, provide arguments for and against a one-off (overnight) adoption (as opposed to a more gradual convergence). A recommendation is required.

You are aware of some excellent literature on the expansion of IFRS in developing and other countries that you will also incorporate in this report. You can include any information in the report which you think will assist the MoF to make these important decisions. You must support your arguments and hence use at least ten resources to inform your discussion.
