Were The Concerns and Anxieties Expressed Prior To The Implementation Of IFRS Justified In The UK?

Ref: fin0011

The focus of this study is to examine the relationship between the introduction of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) and the impact on shareholders of FTSE 100 companies as demonstrated by the movement in share prices as a result of the disclosure of information concerning the IFRSs. The project to harmonise accounting standards globally began in 1973 with the formation of the International Accounting Standards Committee. This was restructured in 2001 to give an improved balance between geographic representation, technical competence and independence as the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). Throughout this whole project, concerns have been raised regarding the impact the new standards will have on companies and consequently, the shareholders. These criticisms have increased in recent years due to countries adopting the standards and experiencing difficulties with them. It is therefore important to identify whether the concerns are justified, as if the shareholders are negatively impacted by the standards, the harmonisation project could fail.
