Example text

22 F. Clarke and G. Dean That push for rules (enabling the ‘tick-a-box’ mentality) to govern accounting practices that has been pursued for the best part of 80 years, underpinned by the idea that comparability would be achieved were each company’s financials prepared to accord with the same rules. The mistaken proposition is that uniformity of essentially input and processing rules would produce uniform output in the form of comparable financial statements. Yet the falsity in the reasoning of that proposition was clearly demonstrable, and clearly evidenced by the variances in the outputs in the financial statements of companies following the same rules.

Whatever the financial outcomes they would be exposed in the wash-up of it all. Whatever Boards of Directors had done, no matter in whose interests they acted; whatever use was made of the intangibles at their disposal; whatever the acumen applied to running their company; irrespective of the supposed inducements to act in their own or ethical ways; independently or otherwise; whether the auditors were independent or not, been rotated or are long-serving, had or had not provided non-audit services, all would be reflected in the financial outcomes.
