Abstract

The purpose of this article is to review the historical development of normative regulation of issues related to goodwill in Bulgaria an objective critical analysis of the established regulations. Our research is based on the applicable legislation in Bulgaria during the period from 1993 to the present day. Dealt with in this article are solely the National Accounting Standards (NAS) adopted for implementation in the Republic of Bulgaria in this period. We have found that in the NAS issues related to goodwill, have a different treatment compared with the applicable IAS / IFRS. Can be formed three main differences that lead to related differences in accounting for goodwill. These differences should not be taken only as a shortcoming of our regulations. Changes in US regulations, IFRS for SMEs, ongoing discussions about the fate of goodwill included in the programs of the FASB and the IASB and the amendments to the Accountancy law in Bulgaria with effect from 1.1.2016, that narrow circle of enterprises which must apply IAS / IFRS, make us confident to believe that the Bulgarian legislator should go to building sustainable national standards regarding business combinations and goodwill. Undoubtedly, the NAS 22 is in need of revision, but it is important that national standards (which we hope will be soon) be relevant, clearly written and relatively easy to implement in comparison with IAS / IFRS, as this will help to increase consumer confidence on the information contained therein.
