INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL REPORTING STANDARDS (IFRS), often known by the older name of International Accounting Standards (IAS), are a set of accounting standards. They are issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).

MANDATORY TRANSFERS are transfers from the current (operating) fund group to other fund groups arising out of binding legal agreements related to the financing, e.g., in education: debt retirement, interest, and grant agreements with federal agencies and other organizations to match gifts and grants. Whereas non-mandatory transfers would be transfers from the current (operating) fund group to other fund groups made at the discretion of management to serve various objectives, e.g., additions to loan funds, endowment funds, plant additions, and voluntary renewal and replacement of plant.
