ABSTRACT
The Romanian accounting system has gone through a radical reform in the last years, but the preoccupations for improving and developing Romanian accounting still continue. In order to preserve the general objective of rendering available to financial managers and analysts a common internationally agreed framework for drawing up and presenting financial statements, accounting professionals have the duty to contribute to the elaboration of accounting policies capable to transform accounting in an essential leadership instrument. Under these circumstances, there is the attempt to identify a dialogue form between accounting norms and policies, between the freedom to choose accounting procedures and the obligation to provide users with credible relevant information. The present work aims to make a thorough analysis of fair value adjustment - version of the depreciated replacement cost - which is specific to specialized corporal immobilized assets seldom commercialized on the market, by starting from the approaches and concepts existing in specialized literature, while afterwards it will carry out a comparative study between normative provisions and the concrete reality of Romanian accounting practice. Aware that fair value adjustment represents the profession of assessment experts, the presents work aims to present the potential models for quantifying fair value, which is an useful information basis for accounting professionals who have one more instrument at their disposal, for effectively and practically applying IRFS norms.
