Thereafter, the paper recognises the economic importance of SMEs both globally and in Nigeria. Justification for differential reporting between listed entities and unlisted SMEs was articulated. The paper notes the advantages and challenges related to adopting IFRS for SMEs globally and in Nigeria. It is recommended that further research be undertaken to access empirically the impact and consequences of adopting IFRS for SMEs by unlisted enterprises in Nigeria
