In order to ensure comparability of information disclosed through accounting, various efforts are being made in the world to harmonize the presentation of information in financial statements. Information provided by these statements is to be more useful for users in the taking of decisions. The users of financial statements, apart from comparability of information provided by the financial statements of entities operating in different countries and economic areas, also expect greater cohesion of given components of the financial statements and greater detail of the data presented in them. Currently work is under way on the joint creation by the IASB – International Accounting Standards Board (the creator of the IAS and the IFRS) and the FASB – Financial Accounting Standards Board (the creator of US GAAP) of global accounting standards, in particular to develop a new concept of financial reporting. This study presents the changing trends in company financial reporting sheets, as proposed by both Accounting Standards Boards – the IASB and the FASB.
