The objective of financial statements is to provide financial information that is useful to investors and other users in making decisions about providing resources to an entity. Financial statements must be supported by proper accounting records to provide evidence that they comply with financial reporting requirements, including applicable accounting standards.

This consultation seeks input from FMC reporting entities and other interested parties on proposed guidance to help reporting entities to meet their statutory requirement to keep proper accounting records at all times.

Submissions will be used to help refine our proposed guidance, which will set out key principles for keeping proper accounting records, along with specific considerations and evidence required for making judgements and estimates when preparing financial statements.
