    Since 2005 European listed companies report their financial figuresbased on IFRSs. This paper investigates whether Hungarian listed companies complywith IFRS disclosure requirements, identifying some factors associated with the levelof compliance. Although the issue of consolidation is not a new topic for Hungarianspecialists, the analysis focuses on the disclosure aspects of consolidation becausepublishing consolidated accounts is considered still a problematic field (Fekete,2008).Findings suggest that corporate size and industry type (more specifically being in theIT&C sector) are statistically associated with the extent of compliance with IFRSdisclosure requirements. This suggest that big, high tech companies comply best toIRFS rules, possibly because they can benefit the most from them.
