Indonesia and Italy have been adopting IFRS in their national accounting standards. However, Indonesia’s GAAP is different from Italy’s GAAP. Hence, financial information users must be educated and understand both countries’ GAAP to interpret the financial report. The purpose of the research is to compare Indonesia’s GAAP and Italy’s GAAP. The research method uses descriptive qualitative analysis. The source of data is based on non-numeric secondary data. The research result shows eight factors that affect accounting development in Italy. There are also differences between Indonesia’s GAAP and Italy’s GAAP. Those differences are related to financial reports presentation, interests, dividends, goodwill, consolidated financial statements, and inventories.
