Regional economic groups usually promote trade within a specific geographical region. The effectiveness of such groups largely depends structures in place which building blocks and includes accounting framework. The adoption of a common accounting practice such as IFRS aids cohesive and solid regional grouping. Other popular reasons for convergence to IFRS may include the following: A profile is maintained for each country and various regional groups of the extent of adoption of IFRS by such regions.
Countries which have adopted IFRS is analysed by continent as follows: Table 1: The extent of adoption of IFRS as depicted by table 1 above can be looked in details as follows: Table 2: Extent of Adoption Explanation: Indicators 1. Commitment to a single set Nearly all of the jurisdictions of the have publicly made commitment of global accounting supporting a single set of high quality global accounting standards.
Only Albania, standards: Commitment to IFRS: Even in the absence of a public statement, IFRS are commonly used by publicly accountable entities listed companies and financial institutions in Belize, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, and Switzerland 3. Adoption of IFRS: All but 2 of those have already begun using IFRS.
Some comments on the remaining 24 jurisdictions that have not adopted: Twelve jurisdictions permit, rather than require, IFRS: Two jurisdictions require IFRS for financial institutions but not listed companies: Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan; c. One jurisdiction is in process of adopting IFRS in full: Thailand; d. One jurisdiction is in process of converging its national standards substantially but not entirely with IFRS: Indonesia; and e. Eight jurisdictions use national or regional standards: Scope of use of IFRS: All of the others require IFRS for all listed companies.
Around 60 per cent of the jurisdictions that require IFRS for all or most domestic publicly traded companies also require IFRS for some domestic companies whose securities are not publicly traded, generally financial institutions and large unlisted companies.
Over 90 per cent of the jurisdictions that require IFRS for all or most domestic publicly traded companies also require or permit IFRS for all or most non-publicly traded companies. Few modifications: Several modifications related to IASB agenda projects that are now completed, including loan loss provisioning, use of the equity method to account for subsidiaries in separate company financial statements, and bearer agricultural assets.
Jurisdictions have already begun eliminating those modifications. Several other modifications relate to projects currently on the IASB's agenda, including accounting for rate-regulated activities. Over view of adoption is depicted by the map below: Diagram — Map 1: Even some countries or regional groups which have adopted IFRS have criteria that limit the scope of adoption. The following are some of the reasons for the failure to adopt IFRS some countries: Protection of indigenous firms.
Some countries especially the developing ones have failed to adopt the IFRS for fear of the collapse of local small firms or companies. The adoption of IFRS opens up the economies of countries to the world with the attendant attraction of Global efficient companies which leads to the folding up of local companies which cannot stand the competition posed by such large companies.
Perpetuation of Dictatorship. Countries with autocratic governance system normally will refuse globally accepted frameworks like the IFRS which will open up the governance of those countries to the world and subsequently could lead to the collapse of such governance system. The process of implementing IFRS is costly, complex and burdensome.
Most companies implement IFRS for more than consolidation purposes. Countries will have to spend huge financial resources in education and training of professionals for the roll out of IFRS. These serve as impediment in the adoption process.
This fails to achieve IASB objective of single set financial standards for all. IASB itself in attempt to address the above concern has ended up creating a sub-set financial reporting standard called the IFRS for SMEs which requires adoption by all countries with its associated burden.
Again, the single set of high quality, understandable and enforceable worldwide accounting standards objective is under threat. IASB is an entity with staff who bringing new standards now and then while changing the existing ones. Accountants and Auditors have to constantly be abreast IFRS applications and new developments; this is making the practice of accounting too mechanical.
