Australian Compliance with Recommended Best Practices
Compliance with Recommended Best Practices
International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN)
May 2004 Australia Corporate Governance
The first financial period for which ASX listed companies will have to supply reporting under the latest code will be in their pending 2004 (and subsequent) annual reports. However, a large proportion (estimated at over half) of the larger companies took advantage of the opportunity to do a 'dry run' in their 2003 annual reports. The researcher says most approached that task with commendable diligence and frankness, achieving a high standard of reporting, although there were some ‘usual suspects’ that sought to interpret the code in a manner that is not logically sustainable. This report examines the findings when compared to the 11 recommedations in the code.
