PUBLISHED ACCOUNTING INFORMATION AND LIMITATIONS OF ITS USES FOR GOVERNMENTAL PURPOSES WITH A SPECIAL REFERENCE TO PUBLIC AND JOINT-VENTURE COMPANIES IN KUWAIT

Auther : Dr. Said Douban and sadik Al-Bassam

This study aims at the identification of the basic needs of the government for the published accounts of companies, with special emphasis on public and joint-venture companies in Kuwait. These basic needs include: unbiased accounting information, great disclosure in annual reports, the social responsibility of companies, accounting information relevant to the construction of national accounting statistics, and the comparative data and statements of changes in the financial position of companies.

The paper also discusses the importance of these basic needs for government policy, especially in assessing the performance of these public undertakings and their implications for the management of the economy. It examines also the current preparation and presentation of these accounts in the light of the basic needs of the government and their limited influence of financial decisions made by the government.

The findings of the study indicate that in most cases, the current state of the published accounts of these companies do not satisfy the basic needs of the government.

The conclusion outlines some constructive suggestions and recommendations to alleviate the current limitations in the preparation and dissemination of these accounts.
