About the Global Preparers Forum

The GPF is a body independent 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.

GPF members have considerable practical experience of financial reporting. Members are established commentators on accounting matters either from their own experience or by working with representative bodies. 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 to contribute to the development of high-quality global accounting standards.
