From compliance to communication – What's your story? 

2013 sees a number of new and revised IFRSs come into effect, some of which contain significant new disclosures.

Meanwhile, there is a growing recognition that financial statements – and corporate reports in general – have to go beyond mere compliance to better communicate a company's strategy, performance and development. Every company has a unique story to tell, and its financial statements should contribute to communicating that story effectively.


Our Guide to financial statements – Illustrative disclosures provides examples of how to present clearer and more engaging IFRS disclosures, organised in a more cohesive way based on the order of significance to our fictional company.
