The main objective of this paper is the analysis of Romanian accounting regulations and the identification of the impact they have on creative accounting techniques. Also, we shall investigate the influence some of these creative accounting techniques have on the true and fair value. Basically, we desire to answer the question: to what extent is being affected the true and fair value reflected within the financial statements of a certain entity by appealing to creative accounting. At international level there are several papers having as subject creative accounting, most of them emphasizing the negative role it has upon achieving the true and fait view. The papers that analyze creative accounting techniques in Romania are rather few, reason to start studying the extent to which Romanian accounting regulations allow the use of creative accounting techniques. We shall use the experience comprised within papers published at international level in order to substantiate an objective analysis of creative accounting techniques in Romania and of the impact they have on true and fait view. Being familiar with the creative accounting techniques is equally useful to the entire palette of accounting information users, including the researchers, for one can quantify the positive or negative impact they have on the true and fair value. One can bring suggestions to modify the accounting regulations, if some creative accounting techniques affect the legitimate interests of certain accounting information users. Also, one can perform analyses regarding the situation of this field in Romania in comparison with the existent situation in other countries. The paper\'s originality is given by the study on the impact of applicable accounting regulations in Romania on creative accounting techniques. There are very few studies in this field in our country and we appreciate that it would be a useful source for the accounting information users. Also, the usefulness of this study is given by the suggestions concerning the instruments to identify the creative accounting techniques that have a negative role on financial statements, so that they would keep their relevance and credibility for the users of accounting information.
