US GAAP versus IFRS
The reporting objective of both ASC 850 and IAS 24 (both titled Related Party Disclosures) is to make financial statement users aware of the effect of related-party transactions on the financial statements. The definitions of a related party are broadly similar, and both standards require that the nature of the relationship, a description of the transaction and the amounts involved (including outstanding balances) be disclosed for related-party transactions.
Neither standard contains any measurement or recognition requirements for related-party transactions. ASC 850 does not require disclosure of compensation of key management personnel as IAS 24 does, but the financial statement disclosure requirements of IAS 24 are similar to those required by the SEC outside the financial statements.
No further convergence is planned at this time.
