      Abstract

      Current accounting practices have for the most part evolved in the environments of the commercial needs and cultures of developed western economies. More particularly, the influence of Anglo-Saxon cultures on world accounting practices can be seen to predominate. The United States of America (USA) and the developed Commonwealth nations (Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom (UK)) are the societies with the largest endowments of professional accountants relative to total population size. Professional bodies from these countries, with the exception of New Zealand, are predominant in the work of the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC) (Wallace 1990). Consequently the Anglo-Saxon accounting model and that of the IASC are essentially the same. (There are, of course, other accounting models, notably the French Plan Comptable Général, the German Framework of Accounts and the Soviet Accounting Systems.)
