Motivation for the paper

Motivation for the paper

  • to summarise theoretically the current development in the external and internal financial reporting

  • to reveal the special features of general development in the case of the Czech Republic


The aims of the paper

The aims of the paper

  • to outline the basic features of the Czech accounting regulatory system

  • to explore usefulness of financial statements and other information prepared in compliance with the IFRS in comparison with the financial statements under CAS for both external and internal users; and

  • to analyse the convergence of financial and managerial accounting in general and in the Czech Republic in particular


Literature overview historical development

Literature overview – historical development

  • strong tendency for the divergence of FAS and MAS due to specialisation and rapid capital accumulation already from the 19the century (Kaplan, 1984)

  • the peak of the tendency after WWI – e.g. Clarks´ (1923) „Different costs for different purposes“

  • „Berlin Wall fall“; European integration and opening of the China together with the turbulent progress of ICT help:

    • linking of national capital markets into single global one

    • companies to expand worldwide by more effective international management of subsidiaries


Model i dual accounting system

Model I – Dual Accounting System

  • FAS … financial accounting system; MAS … management accounting system;

  • Outputs 1 ... tax reports; Outputs 2 ... financial statements; Outputs 3 ... budgeting, planning, performance measuring, control, etc.;

  • Users 1 ... tax authorities; Users2 ... owners, creditors, trade partners, etc.; Users 3 ... managers


Literature overview recent development

Literature overview – recent development

  • separate coexistence of FAS and MAS till 1990´s; then:

    • integration of management accounting techniques (Granlund and Lukka, 1998 or Ittner and Larcker, 2001)

    • harmonisation of the financial reporting (IOSCO, 2000; CEC, 2002 or IASB and FASB, 2002)

  • MAS is influenced by financial reporting requirements (Kaplan, 1984; Nathan et al., 1996)

  • stimuli from MAS incorporated in FAS (Stewart, 1991)


Literature overview current status

Literature overview – current status

  • “integration of financial and management accounting systems” (Angelkort and Weißenberger, 2009)

  • “the convergence of financial accounting and the management accounting” (Taipaleenmäki and Ikäheimo, 2009)

  • „question is not to which extent to converge or integrate, but when the convergence or integration will be finished“ (Hemmer and Labro, 2008)


Model ii integrated accounting system

Model II – Integrated Accounting System


Financial r eporting in the czech republic

Financial reporting in the Czech Republic

  • Based on the Czech Act on Accounting (respecting the Regulation (EC) 1606/2002), Czech companies can be divided into 3 groups:

    • Category I (big Czech companies that are publicly traded on stock exchanges in the EU markets – IFRS reporting only)

    • Category II (Small and medium-sized enterprises – both CAS and additional reporting)

    • Category III (Small and medium-sized enterprises – only CAS reporting)

  • Additional reporting according to the statutory standards of parent company (mostly IFRS, sometimes US GAAP)

Financial reporting in the Czech Republic


Model iii dual accounting system before ifrs adoption

Model III - Dual Accounting System (before IFRS adoption)

  • financial reporting according to CAS hardly subordinated to tax requirements and other information needs of state authorities


Organisational structure of the czech economy

Organisational structure of the Czech economy

The relation between c as and ifrs

The relation between CAS and IFRS

  • CAS reporting obligatory unless entity is publicly traded (only +/- 60 Czech companies on stock exchanges)

  • at least 40 % of companies under foreign control, they must report to parent companies – usually IFRS

  • huge number of differences between CAS and IFRS (study by EY contains 188 pages!), therefore conversion very complex, time- and cost- consuming process

  • in order to low cost burden, the IFRS becoming leading principles for internal management => integration of financial and management accounting to some extent


Model i v integrated accounting system after ifrs adoption

Model IV – Integrated Accounting System (after IFRS adoption)

  • FAS … financial accounting system; MAS … management accounting system;

  • Outputs 1 ... tax reports; Outputs 2 ... financial statements (CAS); Outputs 3 ... financial statements (IFRS); Outputs 4 ... budgeting, planning, performance measuring, control, etc.;

  • Users 1 ... tax authorities; Users 2a ... external users excluding owners; Users 2b ... owners; Users 3 ... managers

Conclusions

Conclusions

  • the Czech accounting is schizophrenic

  • quality financial reporting standards are used for internal purposes

  • external users have to satisfy with low-quality financial statements (although quality information are available)

  • to avoid time, labour and cost burden; entities apply IFRS in the way they can serve as a useful internal reporting system for the management

  • current status quo is useful in terms of meeting informational demand of owners and managers in some extent, but not for the general public

  • resolution could be twofold:

    • to amend and improve the current CAS or

    • to broaden the scope of entities subject to IFRS reporting

  • the will for the change is missing
