There is substantial differences in the objectives and basis for internal, external and tax reporting. This study looks into how far companies use different accounting policies for different uses. Also an attempt is made to empirically verify whether tax accounting governs the policies for other reporting also. Information on the accounting policies of companies with respect to a few items is collected and analyzed to find the differences in policies for different reporting purposes.
