The uniform application of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) across different jurisdictions has been heavily questioned, since the implementation of high-quality accounting standards (as IFRS claim to be) may not necessarily lead to high-quality reporting because of the influences of different socio-economic environments on financial reporting practices. This means that equal levels of compliance with mandatory disclosure requirements and/or consistent measurement and display of similar transactions between different companies may not be achieved. This concern is investigated here, first, by examining the accounting for, and the information disclosed under, IAS 36 Impairment of Assets, IAS 38 Intangible Assets and IFRS 3 Business Combinations. Secondly, levels of compliance with these three standards’ mandated disclosures and their determinants are considered. These investigations involved a large sample of companies from different countries around the world.
