Über dieses Buch

Globalization and the accompanying investment facilities available have resulted in rapid popularity for international financial reporting standards (IFRS). However, differences often exist in terms of what firms report, and once inconsistency between tax regulations and financial reporting regulations occur, differences between taxable and accounting practices are inevitable. This book introduces a new approach to corporate financial reporting by investigating goal incongruence (GING) in the context of the principal and agent (PA) setting. The authors argue that improving the method for the disclosure of information would not only increase the quality of corporate financial information and reporting but also reduce the possibility of any GING arising. This book presents the financial implications of international accounting and financial reporting standards (IAS and IFRS), presenting numerous real-life situations, cases, examples and implications to reveal how GING might influence the implementation of corporate financial reporting of profit volumes and sizes, which are the leading drivers of and widely accepted proxies for corporate financial performance.

2. Theory and Analysis

Abstract
The second chapter, Chapter 2, is comprised of two sections. It theorizes the research question and develops a strong ground for the analytical investigations. The first section sets the main framework. It identifies the place and significance of corporate earnings for modern accounting world. It examines the relevance of corporate earnings. The second section theorizes the research question and develops a rigor setup therefor. Chapter 2 helps build the theoretical and analytical foundation. The theory is borrowed from the principal and agent setting while embedding the dominant firm model. It is shown that the GING problem occurs at the nexus of the (conflicting) interests of the principal and the agent and may induce another problem: varying forms of corporate profits; accounting profits and taxable profits.

3. GING and Corporate Earnings

Abstract
The third chapter, Chapter 3, signifies Goal Incongruence Problem (GING). It connects GING with corporate earnings in a way to come down to a commonly known and real-life-related accounting narrative. Itfocuses on and delves into the recently emerging concept known as treasury loss while providing an in-depth examination. Chapter 3 investigates the relevance of corporate earnings and discusses the significant impact of the GING issue on corporate earnings. The treasury loss issue is well defined and structured while its implications, applications and implementations are all explored in its entirety.

4. The Model

Abstract
The fourth chapter, Chapter 4, is comprised of one section. It builds the model that has been already theorized in the preceding chapter. It analyses and strives on resolving the measurement issues while providing a real-life business case/scenario. Chapter 4 yields some solutions for measurement issues that are documented and discussed with the help of a real-life business case. The given case documents and suggests that market structure and market data be benchmarked to detect the existence or magnitude of any GING issue. This benchmark is argued to work as a best-fit estimator to a large extent.

5. Applications

Abstract
The fifth chapter, Chapter 5, embraces two sections and shows the applications. The first section provides some analytical applications using the pillars of the game theory-rhetoric. The second section documents some real-life applications in connection with international corporate financial corporate reporting while giving a special glance to IAS 12. Although the second chapter exerts a special focus to the relationship of GING with IFRS and IAS, both the sections present numerous cases of real-life implications of GING on corporate financial reporting implementations along with international corporate financial reporting regimes. Building on IAS 12, Chapter 5 tackles the discussion of deferred taxes and presents the implications for accounting and taxable profit figures while considering several real-life cases with varyingfinancial reporting tools, options and strategies.
