Financial analyses are most often based on data from accounting documents published by businesses at the end of each year. Diagnostics, prognostics and recommendations are therefore usually made according to the information extracted from these documents, themselves presented in terms of different national and international financial accounting standards. However, there is always a certain level of bias in the interpretation of this data which stems from the consideration of an event, the classification of a position, or whether or not an event is integrated within an account or separated from it.
Through the standards used in France and referred to in numerous other countries, this book presents different analytical approaches linked to other international standards such as the IFRS and the USGAAP. To complement this, various elements of finance are presented, regardless of the reference model.
1. Value: IFRS vs. USGAAP.
2. Diagnosis of Financial Statements: IFRS.
3. Analysis of the Financial Structure: IFRS vs. USGAAP.
4. Analysis of Activity: Analysis of Profit and Loss Account: IFRS vs. USGAAP.
5. Analysis of Operational Profitability and Risk: IFRS.
6. Analysis by Ratios: IFRS.
7. Analysis by Flux Tables: IFRS vs. USGAAP.
