US GAAP



Introduction

US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (US GAAP) are used by all major North American companies and their international subsidiaries as well as foreign companies that are listed on a US stock exchange unless that company files in full compliance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

US GAAP is generally regarded as being more complex than UK GAAP and IFRS in many respects and following US GAAP can lead to notably different financial results.
