About the Global Preparers Forum

The GPF is an independent body from the IASB and the IFRS Foundation, with the specific aim to provide the IASB with regular input from the international community of preparers of financial statements.

The GPF consists of members with considerable practical experience of financial reporting and who are established commentators on accounting matters in their own right, or through working with representative bodies in which they are involved. Members are drawn from a variety of industry and geographical backgrounds and are selected by the GPF on the merits of their professional competence and practical preparer experience in order to contribute to the development of high-quality, global accounting standards.
