Financial Accounting is one of the key of International Economy. It is a codified set of accounting standards that all professional accountants must apply. There are two main sets of accounting principles: The GAAP (General Accepted Accounting Principles) adopted in the U.S., and the IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) used worldwide by most other countries. And of course there are a lot of other national accounting principle used in different countries: the EU has its own format. Using accounting standards allows regulator, tax authorities and investors to evaluate the company financial records on a consistent basis.

Italian Accounting rules are governed by a legal framework, the Italian Civil Code, that contains requirements about contents, analysis and classification of items included in the statutory financial statements.

The authority overseeing over accounting standards is the Organismo Italiano di Contabilità (OIC). In 2014 have been issued new accounting principles closer to IFRS, although there are still some differences remaining. IFRS are mandatory for corporations issuing widely distributed financial instruments and securities as well for listed companies, but usually not required for other privately owned companies.
