The case for a new accounting research agenda in Spain
AbstractIn Spain both accounting practice and accounting research have been strongly influenced by accounting practices developed in the English speaking world. This paper: 1) Summarizes a seminal English paper, the 'Corporate Report', that identified the potential for accounting reports to serve a wide range of users. 2) Identifies the ways in which English language accounting conceptual frameworks have paid lip service to a range of user needs, but in practice have excluded users other than investors and creditors. 3) Argues that for Spain the ideas put forward in the Corporate Report have a particular relevance, and might usefully form the basis for a new research agenda.
