Analysis of financial reporting in Lithuania.
5th International Conference on Accounting, Athens, Greece, July 2007.
The adoption of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) is supported in many countries inside and outside the European Union because it may improve the quality and comparability of financial reporting. In addition to the use of IFRS by listed companies and in some countries also by unlisted companies, many countries have developed their own national accounting standards based on the international ones. Although the national standards are based on IFRS, they are not identical.

Moreover, it discusses the main differences and similarities between International Accounting Standard 1 ‘Presentation of Financial Statements’ and the first six LBAS related to the preparation and presentation of financial statements in Lithuania
