Thailand has made great efforts over the past ten years to improve the quality of corporate financial reporting. Considerable progress has been made on various fronts to strengthen the institutional framework of accounting and auditing, and to move towards converging Thai national accounting and auditing standards with international benchmarks. This report focuses on areas where stakeholders in the accounting profession in Thailand could consider making changes to strengthen the profession and increase consistency with global benchmarks. The Federation of Accounting Professions (FAP) is the self-regulatory professional body, which is a member of the International Federation of Accountants. The FAP is also the standard-setter, perhaps overly stretched with many responsibilities covered by the volunteer efforts of its members. The FAP develops and reviews accounting standards, as well as audit and ethics standards in line with international good practices. Thailand has in place legislation governing the creation and responsibilities of entities engaged in commercial activities: the accounting act...

This report is an assessment of the corporate sector accounting, financial reporting, and auditing practices within Rwanda. This Report on the Observance of Standards and Codes (ROSC) is benchmarked to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and International Standards on Auditing (ISA) and draws on international experience and good practices to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the institutional underpinnings of corporate financial reporting and make policy recommendations. This assessment is mainly aimed at preparing a road map for institutional capacity building including development of the accountancy profession for bolstering the corporate sector accounting, financial reporting, and auditing in Rwanda. Rwanda is making considerable effort to align its accounting and auditing practices with internationally accepted standards and codes. Along with its growing economy, Rwanda must take effective steps for strengthening all the pillars of the infrastructure of accounting and auditing in line with the international good practices. The ROSC review findings reveal that there are varying compliance gaps in both accounting and auditing practices in Rwanda. These gaps stem from lack of clearer understanding among practicing accountants and auditors about the requirements of internationally accepted standards...

The study education and training of accountants in Anglophone Africa examines the problems facing the accounting profession and identifies examples of best practice. One such example is the Zambia Centre for Accountancy Studies (ZCAS). The objective of this study is to address the problem of an acute shortage of qualified accountants. ZCAS was established in 1988 with support from the European Union (EU). The establishment of the centre enabled Zambia to introduce a national accounting qualification. The key lessons identified include: to successfully introduce a national accounting qualification, a country needs to have good accounting education, and quality education has increased the number of accountants, and improved the standing of the profession in Zambia.

This report provides an assessment of accounting and auditing practices within the context of the Ghana institutional framework to ensure the quality of corporate financial reporting. The accounting and auditing practices in Ghana suffer from institutional weaknesses in regulation, compliance, and enforcement of standards and rules. Various weaknesses were identified in the laws and regulations governing financial reporting. Although Ghana Accounting and Auditing Standards have been based on International Accounting Standards and International Standards on Auditing, respectively, they are outdated and gaps exist in comparison with the international equivalents. Furthermore, national ethical requirements for auditors are not in line with international requirements. Full compliance with Ghana National Accounting Standards is not readily achieved; some listed companies inappropriately claim compliance with International Accounting Standards. There is inadequate adherence to auditing standards and professional ethics. Apart from the banking sector practice...

This report provides an assessment of accounting, financial reporting, and auditing requirements and practices within the enterprise and financial sectors in Bulgaria. The accounting profession is fragmented. There are four different professional associations in the country with the result being low institutional capacity. Furthermore, there is no quality assurance, investigation and discipline process on the work of accountants and financial statement preparers. The auditing profession is better organized with one association mandated by law to manage access to the profession, training, the code of ethics and quality control. Professional education and training on international standards of accounting and auditing requires much improvement for students, accountants, auditors and tax inspectors. This improvement is needed at each of the universities, the professional bodies and the government.

This thesis reports the results of a study which examined the effects of university studies on the workplace expectations and attitudes of accounting students to public accounting. Previous research has suggested the expectations and attitudes have a significant effect on the levels of job satisfaction and employee experiences. This research also showed that job satisfaction can be a major influence on the decision to leave an employer. Employee turnover represents a major issue facing public accounting firms. Previous studies have provided a limited understanding of the role that universities play in shaping student expectations and preparing them for the reality of the workplace. This thesis provides additional understanding of these issues. Drawing on the “met expectations hypothesis” and the “accounting attitude scale,” a series of hypotheses were developed in this thesis. Data were collected through a survey that was administered to commencing and completing accounting student cohorts at two Australian universities, and to accountants recently employed in public accounting firms. Using factor analysis, previous studies identified three components that explained a significant amount of the variance in expectations studies: (1) comfort...

Following the mandatory implementation of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) in Australia as of January 1, 2005, this study examines its impact on accounting quality by focusing on three perspectives: (1) earnings management, (2) timely loss recognition, and (3) value relevance. Using four years of adoption experience since the mandate was first made effective in Australia for a wide range of accounting-based metrics and market-based information, we find that the mandatory adoption of IFRS has resulted in better accounting quality than previously under Australian generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In particular, the findings indicate that the pervasiveness of earnings management by way of smoothing has reduced, while the timeliness of loss recognition has improved post-adoption. Additionally, the value relevance of financial statement information has improved, especially for non-financial firms. This is despite the fact that there is evidence to suggest that financial firms are engaged in managing earnings toward a small positive target after the mandatory adoption of IFRS in Australia.; Yi Lin Chua, Chee Seng Cheong and Graeme Gould

Historically, accounting and auditing in the Philippines has been heavily influenced by practices of the United States. More recently, efforts have been made to adapt International Accounting Standards and International Standards on Auditing to national circumstances. However, there are gaps between the current international standards and the applicable Philippine standards, and in compliance of Philippine standards. Established in 1929, the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) is one of the oldest professional accountancy bodies in Asia. The passage of the Accountancy Act 1923 led to the creation of the Board of Accountancy, with authority to issue certificates for certified public accountants. The PICPA presently lacks effective mechanisms either for monitoring members' professional activities or for taking appropriate actions against errant members. There are gaps in the capacity of the SEC and the Central Bank to monitor and enforce rules and regulations with reference to accounting...

Both statutory requirements and actual practices were analyzed as part of this review. The purpose of this ROSC is to assist the Government of El Salvador in strengthening the private sector's accounting and auditing practices and financial transparency. The development objectives these efforts address are (a) fostering the growth and accountability of the private sector, (b) ensuring adequate market regulation with respect to the provision of essential services, and (c) making the business environment more attractive for foreign direct investment (FDI). The recommendations of this ROSC are intended to serve as the basis for a country action plan to be developed by the Government of El Salvador in collaboration with in-country stakeholders and with the assistance of the World Bank and other donors.

This report provides an assessment of accounting and auditing practices in Sierra Leone with reference to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) requirements issued by the International Accounting Standards Board, and International Standards on Auditing (ISA) issued by the International Federation of Accountants. This assessment is positioned within the broader context of the country's institutional framework and capacity needed to ensure the quality of corporate financial reporting. Efforts are necessary for strengthening the capacity of the regulators and ensuring compliance with applicable standards and codes. The accounting and auditing practices in Sierra Leone need to develop in line with a growing economy, as well as with international best practice. With the exception of banks and similar financial institutions, there is no legal mandate for other corporate entities to follow IFRS in preparation of financial statements and ISA in conducting audits. There are varying compliance gaps in both accounting and auditing practices. These gaps are likely to stem from lack of clearer understanding of professional accountants, inadequate technical capacities of the regulators, absence of implementation guidance, lack of independent oversight of the auditing profession...

This report describes the results of a ROSC assessment of the accounting, financial reporting and auditing requirements and practices of the Republic of Tajikistan's enterprise and financial sectors. The report assesses the quality of the Tajik financial reporting framework and makes policy recommendations for improvement. With a gross national income per capita of US$430, Tajikistan remains the poorest country in the former Soviet Union. Despite various reforms over the past several years, the business climate still lags behind other transition countries. Many of the country's problems stem from the 1992-1997 civil war, which so damaged the country's economic infrastructure that it precipitated a sharp decline in industrial and agricultural production. Although there has been moderate domestic growth since 1997, real output is currently just over 50 percent of the 1989 level. The Republic of Tajikistan's small financial system is dominated by a few banks. The level of financial activity is among the lowest in the world...

Financial reporting and auditing practices in Moldova's corporate sector are currently in a period of transition from providing for tax calculation and statistical needs to convergence with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and International Standards on Auditing (ISA). This report draws upon recent international experience in developed economies and EU accession countries as well as expected amendments to EU Directives. The review found that, except in the banking sector, the current level of compliance with financial reporting obligations is inadequate, and that the quality of the financial reporting is low. In that context, the report recommends the following actions: (i) the capacity of regulatory agencies for enforcing accounting standards and financial reporting requirements to all entities of public interest - including large state-owned enterprises - should be increased; (ii) a public registry should be set-up for all public-interest companies to file their financial statements; and (iii) an independent oversight board of auditors should be established under the soon-to-be-issued new Audit Law...

Turnover in public accounting firms is a critically important issue as firms seek to retain quality accounting personnel in the face of skilled labour shortages. Mentoring is one initiative that has been suggested as a means of reducing the high costs associated with employee turnover. However, prior accounting research examining the association between mentoring and turnover intentions has produced mixed results, which may be due, at least in part, to difficulties in operationalizing the mentoring construct. Drawing on recent management literature regarding organizational turnover intentions, we challenge the conventional view that mentoring generally leads to reduced turnover intentions, by testing a theoretical model that posits that different functions of mentoring have differing effects on turnover intentions. Specifically, we argue that while the psychosocial support function of mentoring can serve to reduce public accountants’ turnover intentions, the career development function of mentoring has the potential to increase turnover intentions. Results support this conclusion.
