Extended External Reporting in New Zealand: 2017 surveys

Extended External Reporting User Survey now open!

In collaboration with the External Reporting Board (XRB), the McGuinness Institute is surveying users of extended external reporting by for-profit entities in New Zealand.

The survey asks consumers, employees, investors, members of the community and other stakeholders to assess the current reporting landscape and to evaluate what is or is not working and what might be missing. The survey will take approximately 1520 minutes to complete. Please complete the survey by 9am, Monday 28 August.

Report 17 – Building a Reporting Landscape Fit for Purpose
Report 17 will bring together the findings from our two surveys with what we can learn from
national and international research. We aim to highlight key findings and make suggestions on how New Zealand might better use external reporting to drive foresight and strategy – so that New Zealand is better prepared for the future. Report 17 will be published later in 2017 or early in 2018.

Background
