  Corporate Financial Reporting and Regulation in Japan

Show Summary Details


Japanese accounting standards have developed out of a very different set of national characteristics and financial markets from the other countries surveyed in the book. In particular, they have been strongly influenced by government over the years. In recent years, the government has stepped up efforts to harmonize Japanese standards with international standards, although the Japanese experience suggests that it is not easy to export one regime to other countries.
