Investors: the IASB needs your input on accounting
The objective of general purpose financial reporting is to provide financial information about the reporting entity that is useful to existing and potential investors, lenders and other creditors in making decisions about providing resources to the entity.
The IASB cannot achieve this objective on its own. We need investors and analysts to tell us where this is working well, and where there are opportunities for improvement. Your knowledge of how reporting works in practice will help us to develop accounting standards that better meet your needs.
The IASB’s Investor Centre aims to make it easy for investors and analysts to:
- understand how recent changes to accounting standards may impact company analysis;
- stay up to date on changes that are in the pipeline, especially those that will impact financial statements; and
- share views on the IASB’s projects, get involved in IASB events, or make suggestions about future projects that the IASB might undertake.
You don’t need an accounting background to speak to us. It is your insight and experience as an investor that we need!
