Introduction: the true and fair view in British accounting

Author

Listed:
  • Peter Walton

Abstract

This article sets out to provide a framework against which to evaluate the true and fair view. It poses the question as to what the true and fair view might mean, and what significance it has. It analyses what the term means in the British accounting literature, how the meaning of such a term arises and how it may be transferred to other countries. It then considers what is the significance of the term in the political arena.1
