Sažetak

Globalization of business and free flow of capital resulted in strong demand for comparable financial reports worldwide. An important element of achieving de facto harmonization of financial reporting is de jure harmonization, i.e. harmonization of regulatory requirements on the country level. Although more than 100 countries have a requirement for use of IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) for listed companies, de facto harmonization is still an ongoing process. De facto harmonization is affected by many influential factors, among which de jure harmonization represents one of the most important factors. For the purpose of the study, the authors developed an index of de jure harmonization (IDJH) based on the EU regulatory framework and evaluated its value for 5 CEE countries (Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, Slovenia and Serbia). Empirical findings reveal significant differences in de jure harmonization, related to the country's status in relation to EU integration processes.
