THE EVALUATION OF IFRS 4 DISCLOSURE AND FIRM PERFORMANCE OF INSURANCE COMPANIES IN NIGERIA

 

 

 

ABSTRACT

IFRS 4 is an International Accounting Standard Board providing guideline for the accounting of insurance contract. This paper therefore, examined the compliance of IFRS 4 and performance of quoted Insurance Companies in Nigeria. The study further  investigate the extent of compliance with disclosure requirements of IFRS 4 and determined the relationship between ROA, liquidity, ROE, leverage and firm size with compliance of IFRS4 disclosure. Quantitative grading system was used to investigate the extent of compliance. Multiple regression analysis was further used to find out the relationship between ROA, liquidity, ROE, leverage and firm size with compliance of IFRS 4 disclosures. The study found that the sampled companies complied at 90% which suggest a strong compliance. ROA, ROE, and Liquidity have a positive significant relationship with compliance with a p-values of 0.0324<0.05, 0.01<0.05, and 0.0247<0.05 respectively. The study also found that leverage is negative but has a significant relationship with compliance. Therefore, the study recommends that, the Inspectorate unit which is the monitoring and enforcement mechanisms need to be improved upon. Although, the level of compliance is good, but mandatory disclosures are meant to be fully complied with 100%.
