The true and fair view requirement in recent national implementations

Aisbitt, Sally and Nobes, Christopher (2001). The true and fair view requirement in recent national implementations. Accounting and Business Research, 31(2) pp. 83–90.




This note examines the implementation of the true and fair view requirement into the laws of Austria. Finland. Norway and Sweden. It builds on an earlier analysis of the 12 EU member states that had previously implemented the requirement. It is found that three of the four countries depart from the wording of the appropriate language versions of the Fourth Directive. Also, two of the countries do not implement the 'override', and the other two implement it in a way not done before, by reserving to the member state the specification of the allowed departures.
