Abstract: In Romania, the IFRSs were gradually adopted. Certain events related to the reform of Romanian accounting system have improved the likelihood of IFRS adoption in Romania. Hence, in Romania, the IFRSs are used by credit institutions and by listed entities, for the preparation of consolidated financial statements (since 2006 and, respectively, 2007) and for individual financial statements (since 2012). The objectives of our paper are: to identify the events associated with the adoption of IFRS in Romania; to critically analyze the grounds (reasons) behind the decisions that have impelled IFRS adoption in Romania and to provide insights into the market reaction for the adoption of IFRS in Romania.
