The Practical Experience of Adapting to the International Accounting Standards
AbstractThe multinational companies pay enormous money for making and auditing their accounting reports according to the different national regulations. For these multinational companies the aspects of maximizing the profit is significantly more important than the aspects of national interest or the geographical position. Because of this there is a demand for creating such accounting systems which are evaluating the holder’s economic results equally. Meanwhile the interpretation and adaptation of the financial information based on the different accounting methods are also expensive for the users of these reports. Therefore an authentic and standardized international account reporting system could form that business language, which would allow the comparison of the accounting information of each country. According to the business practice it is obvious that the usage of international accounting principles leads to a reduction of the information asymmetry between the owners and the managers. Previous international accounting references shown that because of this information asymmetry payment of the managers decreased, while the cost of equities rose and the economical and financial forecasts are less accurate.
