Use of Options within the Accounting Directives

  • European Union (old) Image

20 Sep 2011

The European Commission services have published a report on the responses received to the consultation of accounting regulatory committee members on the use of options within the European Accounting Directives.

This report provides an update on the extent to which certain options included within the Accounting Directives have been incorporated into the law of the Member States and EEA countries.

The report summarises the responses to a questionnaire distributed to the representatives in the Accounting Regulatory Committee (ARC) in 2010. It includes responses from all 27 Member States, as well as Norway, and the responses are accurate as at 1 July 2010. Where Member States gave explanations on how options have been incorporated into national law, they are also provided.
