CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1    BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

Couple of years back, what is now known as International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) witnessed worldwide spread debate. However, today scholars and researchers are devoting significant time and interest on the subject matter, this can be traced to the demands of globalization. According to Erahan and Beken (2008), opined that the globalization of capital market requires a single global accounting reporting and disclosure of set of standards. Today, the need for a unified standards is increasing in high demand by most economics in the world, arising from wide spread clamour by most entities for oversea capital, business combination including mergers and acquisition resulting to growing number of foreign direct investment among others. Although some commentators have said that adoption of IFRS will allow for International Comparison of Financial Statement, that may lead to reduction in the cost of capital, increased trade, increase access to foreign finance, as well as increased level of cross border merger and acquisition resulting to growing number of foreign direct investment among others.

Although some commentators have said that adoption of IFRS will allow for international comparison of financial statement, that may lead to reduction in the cost of capital, increased trade, increase access to foreign finance, as well as increased level of cross border merger and acquisition activities among others (Houston and Reinstein, 2001). However, some impediment are perceived to accompany adoption of IFRS as Melancon, and Eliot (2001) noted that notwithstanding the high quality of International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS), there are so many impediments that may hind the adoption of IFRS in Nigeria, such as complicated nature of particular standards IFRS (including financial instruments) and susceptible to varied interpretations. This has tendencies of different countries applying International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) differently for similar transactions. Currently, over one hundred countries have adopted International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) and it is noted that by 2011 most countries of the world will either require or at least permit (IFRS) (ICAN Seminar, 2009).
