THE DISCLOSURE OF SOCIAL INFORMATION IN PUBLISHED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (A Suggested Model for Kuwaiti Corporations)

Auther : By: Dr. Mohamed M. Abdel-Meguid

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in the social responsibility of business enterprises in Kuwait. However, the management of Kuwaiti corporations has given almost no attention to the disclosure of social information in their annual reports. Accordingly, the users of those reports find it difficult, if not impossible, to asses the social performance of these corporations.

Reasons for this phenomenon can be identified as the following three:

    1. The law imposes no obligation over companies to disclose social information,
    2. Management devotes no attention to this matter,
    3. And finally no model exists for the disclosure of such information.

This study analyses the social responsibility of Kuwaiti corporations and suggests a model that could be applied for the disclosure of social information in the published financial statement of Kuwaiti corporations.
