Maysam Ayoub, Dr. Hasan El-Mousawi


Tangible fixed assets are fundamental to the organization; thus, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) issued International Accounting Standard 16, (IAS 16—Property, Land and Equipment), which includes regulations that organize the recognition, measurement and disclosure of those assets. Later versions of the standard improved and updated the standard. The research aims at studying the extent of commitment of Lebanese accountants to implementing IAS 16. The researchers used a descriptive, analytical approach to tackle their topic. A well-structured five-point Likert style questionnaire was used to collect data. The samples were all members of the Lebanese Association of Certified Public Accountants (LACPA). The results of the study showed a difference of statistical significance within the opinions of the study samples about the extent of commitment of LACPA members to applying IAS 16. The research reached that accountants in Lebanon apply only some items of IAS 16, which the research tool specified. The researchers had some recommendations based on the findings of the research.
