Martin Glaum, Peter Schmidt, Donna Street and Silvia Vogel: Compliance with IFRS 3- and IAS 36-required disclosures across 17 European countries - company- and country-level determinants

Published on: Mar 09, 2013

Martin Glaum, Peter Schmidt, Donna Street and Silvia Vogel analyse compliance for a large sample of European companies mandatorily applying International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Focusing on disclosures required by IFRS 3 Business Combinations and IAS 36 Impairment of Assets, they find substantial non-compliance.

The authors find that compliance levels are determined jointly by company- and country-level variables, indicating that accounting traditions and other country-specific factors continue to play a role despite the use of common reporting standards under IFRS.
