(2010). International Review of Financial Analysis,19(3), 193-204. This study focuses on the adoption of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) in the UK and concentrates in the switch from the UK GAAP to IFRSs. The study seeks to determine whether IFRS adoption leads to higher quality accounting numbers. By examining company accounting measures reported under the UK GAAP and IFRSs, the study investigates the earnings management potential under IFRSs. The paper also studies the value relevance of IFRS-based financial statement information. The study indicates that the implementation of IFRSs generally reinforces accounting quality. The post-adoption effects of the implementation of InternationalFinancial Reporting Standardsin Greece, Iatridis, G., & Rouvolis, S. (2010). Journal of international accounting, auditing and taxation,19(1), 55-65. This study investigates the effects of the transition from Greek GAAP to IFRS on the financial results of Greek listed firms. The study also examines the factors associated with the provision of voluntary IFRS disclosures before the official period of adoption, the degree of earnings management under IFRS, and the value relevance of IFRS-based accounting numbers. The findings show that the implementation of IFRS has introduced volatility in key income statement and balance sheet measures of Greek firms. The study provides evidence that IFRS adoption leads to more value relevant accounting measures. Internationalfinancial reporting standardscredible and reliable? An overview, Alali, F., & Cao, L.
