    Abstract

    [eng] Is the fair value a true measurement of firm's value ? . This article analyses the utility of a fair value measurement of firm's income and value. The answer of the question « Is fair value relevant ? » concerns three subjects : Do fair value accounting standards explain a best assessment of the enterprise's value and of its business risk ? What is the information for stakeholders and shareholders ? What is the utility of fair value for decision making ? This article considers bases and limits of traditional accounting model. It analyses determining factors and emerging process of fair value regarding uses and needs of financial statements. This article presents a survey of empirical works assessing utility of fair value in accounting. . JEL classifications : G14, M41 [fre] Cet article s'interroge sur l'utilité d'une mesure de la richesse et du revenu de l'entreprise fondée sur la juste valeur. La question « l'évaluation à la juste valeur est-elle pertinente ? » peut s'analyser ainsi : les « nombres comptables » reposant sur la juste valeur donnent-ils une meilleure estimation de la valeur de l'entreprise et du risque d'activité ? Quel est leur contenu informatif pour les utilisateurs ? Quelle est l'utilité de l'information en juste valeur pour la prise de décision ? Cet article tente de répondre à ces questions en examinant les fondements et les limites du modèle comptable traditionnel ; en analysant ensuite les déterminants et le processus d'émergence de la juste valeur au regard du rôle assigné aux états financiers et des besoins des utilisateurs ; en présentant enfin une synthèse des travaux empiriques relatifs à l'évaluation de l'utilité de l'information comptable en juste valeur. . Classification JEL : G14, M41
