MetadataShow full item record
With increased globalization the need for more harmonious accounting principles intensifies. Since hope to spend some time working as an accountant in Mexico, he purpose of this project was to acquaint myself with the structure of Mexico's accounting body. I set out to learn and understand the structure ofthe standard-setting body, the certification requirements, the GAAP hierarchy, the conceptual framework and the significant accounting differences. I approached my research using books, the Internet, and periodicals. I was able to locate an abundance of information on Mexico as a whole but accounting related information was more difficult to come by. I was able to come across enough resources to complete my project but more current information would have been more useful.
