Economic Application Utilizing the Theory of Regulatory Compliance

Here is an article published in the Academic Journal of Economic Studies utilizing the Theory of Regulatory Compliance (Fiene, 2016; 2019).  The study appraises the quality of compliance upheld by selected Nigerian and Ghanaian manufacturing companies to minimum disclosure requirements of IFRS during financial reporting. Hence, it determines whether any significant difference exists in the compliance quality of the post IFRS Financial Statements prepared in Nigeria and Ghana in their first five years of IFRS adoption. It is an empirical study that is descriptively designed to pave room for the use of the content analysis scoring system as the core instrument for data collection.

The study recommends that a more robust regulatory oversight on companies’ full compliance to IFRS disclosure requirements be upheld towards achieving a commendable level of comparison in both countries’ IFRS Financial Statements as expected. More so, companies’ consistent full compliance to IFRS requirements should hence be adopted as one of the prerequisites for there continued listing by the Nigerian and Ghana Stock Exchanges.
