The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) also requires this. Foreign companies trading stocks or bonds in the United States should not publish their accounts in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), but must prepare a reconciliation report to provide detailed information to US investors. For US companies that are not listed on the exchange, although there are no general requirements for submitting applications, there are about 15,000 non-listed companies that prepare reports in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Some of them are based on bank credit requirements, while others are voluntarily established by the US Accounting Standards Board. US GAAP is broader than IFRS, and contains hundreds of guidelines, notes, opinions and other authoritative rules.
