The Evolution Of Financial Standards For Small And Medium- Sized Entities "
AbstractAccording to the growing need for more comparable accounting standards, the beginnings of In- ternational Financial Reporting Standards for small and medium sized entities (IFRS for SMEs) can be found in the year 2004. IFRS for SMEs represents for the first time an accounting standard for small and medium-sized companies that can be used globally. The paper aims to examine the histori- cal development of IFRS, the principal institutions linked to their adoption and the harmonization process of standards within the European Union. The main contribution of the paper refers to the evo- lution of IFRS for SMEs and the main differences between the full IFRS in use and the IFRS for SMEs. The results of the comparative analysis demonstrate that several differences exist between them. Alt- hough the aim of the new standard is to assure comparable financial statements for small and medium-sized entities, the presented disadvantages demonstrate that not necessarily its implementa- tion will assure more benefits than the cost that will occur."
