IASB and CbC reporting: new discussions

Richard Murphy has written a detailed response here. It would be useful to marshal as many submissions as possible on this crucial issue. Please follow this link for more details. He will be blogging a lot on country-by-country (CbC) reporting; his blog has a dedicated CbC link is here. (If you forget the location of the relevant links, you can always find them on our permanent A-Z archive, which can be found in the right hand column of our website.)

Complementing this is a most useful recent briefing sheet: Who are the users of accounts?

And there is another briefing sheet, outlining the Benefits of Country-by-Country Reporting.
