Wiley GAAP 2005 delivers the most recent developments and analysis of all generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), restating the original, highly technical pronouncements in easy-to-understand terms and providing battle-tested implementation guidance.

  • A streamlined format that helps readers find what they need to know quickly
  • Expanded and complete, real-world implementation guidance and coverage on the latest FASB standards and interpretations, including variable interest entities (FIN 46 (R)) and instruments with characteristics of both equity and debt (SFAS 150)

  • Detailed coverage of important, proposed standards on exchanges of productive assets, purchase method accounting for aquisitions, and accounting for combinations of not-for-profit and mutual enterprises

  • Expanded discussion of FASB Concepts Statement No. 7
  • Detailed coverage of the AcSEC Statement of Position (SOP) 03-3 on accounting for loans and debt securities acquired in transfers

  • An authoritative financial statement disclosure checklist

Featuring numerous real-world examples, illustrations, and helpful practice hints that are extremely user-friendly, Wiley GAAP 2005 is designed with the needs of the reader in mind. Covering the entire GAAP hierarchy, Wiley GAAP addresses all effective pronouncements, including:

  • FASB Interpretations
  • FASB Technical Bulletins
  • FASB Statements of Financial Accounting Concepts
  • FASB Statements of Financial Accounting Standards (SFASs)
  • Consensus Opinions of the Emerging Issues Task Force of the FASB
  • AICPA Statements of Position
  • Accounting Research Bulletins
  • Accounting Principles Board Opinions
  • AICPA Audit and Accounting Guides

As clients demand accounting procedures they can trust, so accountants require up-to-date reference materials they know they can depend on. More than any other resource, Wiley GAAP 2005 provides the indispensable tools for the accounting professional.
