Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines transparency in fair value accounting (measurement, presentation, additional disclosure), with special emphasis on tax disclosure and on the presentation of fair values in the statement of other comprehensive income. After considering the international relevance of the International Financial Reporting Standards, the chapter discusses fair value accounting in the context of accounting standards. It then reviews prior research to determine whether fair value accounting adds to accounting transparency. It also looks at the measurement and presentation of the transparency of fair value accounting based on relevance and reliability, along with issues of earnings management and procyclical effects.
