TL;DR: In this article, the authors investigated whether the financial reporting under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) has more quality than local GAAP for firms listed on Taiwan stock exchange and found that firms adopting IFRS evidence less earnings smoothing.
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the financial reporting under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) has more quality than local GAAP for firms listed on Taiwan stock exchange. Financial Reporting Quality is measured in this study by three attributes of earnings introduced in previous literature, namely: 1) earnings management expressed as managing towards positive earnings and earnings smoothing and, 2) timely loss recognition expressed as the asymmetric incorporation of economic gains and losses and large negative net income, and 3) value relevance. Ordinary Least Square (OLS) Regression analysis, Ztest, and Binary Logistic Regression are employed to investigate the pre-IFRS (2008- 2010) and post-IFRS (2012-2014) adoption periods on value relevance, earnings management, and timely loss recognition. The study employs a sample of 426 manufacturing firms from 8 industries listed on Taiwan stock exchange. The study finds that firms adopting IFRS evidence less earnings smoothing. However, there is no significant difference in either the timely loss recognition or the value relevance of accounting information between the pre and post-adoption periods. This study contributes to the literature by using data from an emerging market. It provides an insight to practitioners, international standard setters and regulators into the international debate on the effects of the switch from local GAAP to IFRS on Financial Reporting Quality.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors investigate whether German companies that have adopted IFRS engage significantly less in earnings management compared to German companies reporting under German generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), while controlling for other differences in earningsmanagement incentives.
Abstract: Abstract This paper addresses the question whether voluntary adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is associated with lower earnings management. Ball et al. (Journal of Accounting and Economics, 36(1–3), pp. 235–270, 2003) argue that adopting high quality standards might be a necessary condition for high quality information, but not necessarily a sufficient one. In Germany, a code-law country with low investor protection rights, a relatively large number of companies have chosen to voluntarily adopt IFRS prior to 2005. We investigate whether German companies that have adopted IFRS engage significantly less in earnings management compared to German companies reporting under German generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), while controlling for other differences in earnings management incentives. Our sample, consisting of German listed companies, contains 636 firm-year observations relating to the period 1999–2001. Our results suggest that IFRS-adopters do not present different earnings management behavior compared to companies reporting under German GAAP. These findings contribute to the current debate on whether high quality standards are sufficient and effective in countries with weak investor protection rights. They indicate that voluntary adopters of IFRS in Germany cannot be associated with lower earnings management.

TL;DR: This article examined whether value relevance has improved after the compulsory adoption of IFRS using a sample of 3,721 companies listed on five European stock exchanges: Frankfurt, Madrid, Paris, London and Milan.
Abstract: European listed companies are required to prepare their consolidated financial statements in accordance to IFRS since 1st January 2005. IFRS are supposed lead to better accounting quality and to a closer association between market-based and accounting-based performance, or value relevance. We examine whether value relevance has improved after the compulsory adoption of IFRS using a sample of 3,721 companies listed on five European stock exchanges: Frankfurt, Madrid, Paris, London and Milan. We find little evidence of an improvement in value relevance. However, earnings are found to influence share price to a greater extent than prior to IFRS adoption, while the influence of the book value of equity is found to have decreased.
