The deterioration of the reputation of major players in financial markets (banking, insurance, financial institutions) has created a crisis of confidence without precedent with lasting consequences for all economic actors today and they are difficult to measure. In this context of high uncertainty, the implementation of a device called GRC (Governance Risk Control) is effective in restoring the confidence between the parties and appears to be a major area of work to restore stability.
The establishment of good governance is based on the operational application of clearly established principles such as reliability of financial reporting and accounting. Financial communication is a device that is essential for the proper functioning of financial markets. As a backdrop of the economic fabric, it is of growing importance and forms a crucial indicator of support for decision making for investors.
It facilitates the allocation of resources, contributes to the adjustment of positions of operators and has a say on policies adopted by companies making public offering. In recent years, it has acquired a growing importance to such an extent that it is part of the strategy of large listed companies. The disclosure may be defined as a strategic process of transmission of a representation of the economic reality of the business intended to influence the expectations of its backers positioning itself in a capital market.
Today, the transparency of financial reporting is a challenge that determines an entire economy based on an exchange of capital in order to enable companies to acquire the funds needed to promote their activities. This implies that the traditional characteristics of financial reporting have become inadequate in a context of globalization of capital markets. It is also necessary that this information is universally understandable and comparable. From this angle, the utility will include discussions on the merits of adopting international standards by national standard setters.
In Tunisia, there is an attempt to measure the benefits of a possible application of these standards by taking into account the obstacles. In this perspective, it seems more than obvious that the IAS / IFRS in Tunisia will see increased utility and the rapid development of financial markets.
The last thirty years, internationalization of financial markets and the concomitant integration of these markets have transformed the business structure. By measuring their performance capital markets are becoming more complex, as the economic activities of businesses explains the increasing complexity of financial statement presentation that reflects the effect of these activities.
Still, the phenomenon of globalization, the growing number of multinationals and the opening of financial markets to investors of all nationalities, to borrow the interest of international standards and adopting a universal accounting language is undeniable.
Another advantage is that the introduction of a new philosophy that emphasizes the accurate representation of the situation of the company.
A philosophy that is reflected in a sharp IFRS accounting with respect to legal constraints on one hand, and the transition from a patrimonial vision (where the accounts are encrypted representation of the assets of an entity and the evolution of the latter in a year), a financial representation (where the financial statements present fairly the financial position and performance of the entity) on the other.
