Getting Ready for the Statement of Future Value: A Visionary Look into the Future of Accounting


Published on

Cornis van der Lugt - Leading corporates world-wide have experimented with different methodologies for capturing true value creation and developing alternative statements (such as green P&Ls and Social Balance Sheets) since the turn of the century. From this emerges the field of sustainability accounting as recognised discipline, alongside financial and management accounting. What would income statements and balance sheets look like if the results from alternative statements were to be integrated with mainstream filings? How would US and Global GAAP respond? What would a statement of Future Value look like? Having chaired an international expert group on the future of accounting over the last two years, Cornis will present their recently launched 3.0 Accounting Blueprint.

  10. 10. #NewMetrics #Reporting3 Diverse expectations of statements and narrative… • Users will need information about a company’s intangibles—strategy, business model or technical know-how—many of which currently are not recognized in the financial statements. Hans Hoogervorst, IASB Chair (2017) • ESG ratings we have today still really only give you a general feeling of performance, not a direct financial cost or benefit. Susana Penarrubia, Deutsche Asset Management (2017) • The biggest factors that limit the use of non- financial information by investors include lack of appropriate quantitative ESG information; lack of comparability over time; and questionable data quality. CFA Institute (2017) • Many of these intangibles are hard to value, have costs that are difficult to track and may not even be controlled by the entity, which are all good reasons for not recognising them as assets… it may well be that reporting such information outside the financial statements will be more effective at communicating the development of a business… ACCA (2018) • The “science” typically include a multitude of tools to support the quantification and monetization of risks... The “art” is the analysis and decision-making based on intuition, expertise and a holistic view of the organization. WBCSD (2017)
