    The aim of this paper is to study the role of institutional factors in determining the additional value relevance of accounting numbers due to the adoption of IFRS. The empirical tests have focused on a panel of 14 European countries divided according to their institutional features: the force of law (Kaufmann et al. 2007), the degree of reporting incentives (Dyck and Zingales 2007) and differences between local standards and IFRS (Bae et al. 2008). The results of empirical tests indicate that the adoption of IFRS has had different impacts on the value relevance of accounting numbers between the compared institutional groups.
