Financial Reporting Regulations in Kuwait: A Synthesis and Framework for Evolution

Auther : Shuaib Abdulla Shuaib

This paper examines and analyzes the disclosure regulations in the State of Kuwait. The relevant literature has been reviewed to provide the bases for the analysis of disclosure regulations; experiences of developed countries such as the USA and UK- in enacting reporting regulations have been drawn on, too. Over the last two decades, the disclosure regulations imposed on the financial environment in Kuwait have expanded dramatically. Much concern resulted from some well- publicised failures of public and non-public companies in the wake of the 1982 stock-market crash in Kuwait. This, further supported the application of reporting regulations. Some benefits were achieved such as the standardization and higher quality of information. Suggestions for improvement are proposed here concerning research directions, non-financial information, the expansion of the base for tradable shares, and the bases for the preparation of financial statements.
