cfaajay U.S.GAAP does allow Proportionate consolidation for unincorporated entities ..such as in construction industry..but U.S.GAAP prefers equity method.
thebkr777 Does this not contradict the chart they gave us? "US: Equity method. IFRS Equity or Proportionate consolidation"
SRI2010 thebkr777, in my opinion, the second one is false because the IFRS doesnt explicity recommend the proportionate consolidation method. it is "either-or"
davidt876 "Both IFRS and U.S. GAAP require the equity method of accounting for joint ventures" - is what the notes just said
