The SEC’s report on the work plan for the endorsement of IFRSs, published last July, made a great impression, since it was entirely free of any recommendations for adoption of IFRSs by the United States. After the shock come the reactions, and the cautious attitude of the US is causing some gritting of teeth. Convergence at any cost is coming under more and more criticism, and the FASB’s recent decision to withdraw from the compromise on the impairment of financial assets will hardly ease anyone’s mind. The European Commission believes that 2013 will be the year of truth as far as US participation in IFRSs is concerned.
