The CIMA view

The debate on corporate reporting is currently moving towards consideration of how a global standards setter might be set up. Given our members vast experience of corporate reporting CIMA has produced a response to the debate initiated by Accountancy Europe. Their consultation paper from December 2019 asks fundamental questions around how new non-financial reporting should be developed. Our response addresses these issues from the point of view of the management accountant and seeks to spell out how our profession can contribute to this arena.

CIMA in its response argues that the code should seek to focus more on culture and trust as well as improving the linkage between the code and actual investment decisions.
