Today, staff of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) launched a survey on disclosures. The survey is directed at preparers and users and others interested in or affected by disclosure requirements. It is aimed at assisting the IASB to gain a clearer picture on the perceived "disclosure problem" in advance of the IASB's forthcoming public Discussion Forum on that matter. The public forum will take place on 28 January 2013 in London, UK.
All responses to the survey will be confidential and no information published will be attributable to any individual or organisation. The survey will take around 10 minutes to complete (depending on the amount of additional information you may wish to provide).
To allow sufficient time to evaluate results in advance of the Discussion Forum, the survey closes on 15 January 2013.
The survey can be accessed via this link.

If you want to review the full survey before you complete it attached are two copies: one for users and one for preparers.
Each assumes you agree that there is a disclosure problem and, in the case of users, that you use annual reports. If you feel you don’t fit into one of these categories but would still like a copy of the full survey, please contact us and we can send you a tailored version.
