Integrated Reporting:
-------------------------------------------------
A one step ahead towards Corporate Reporting
*Dr.Manisha S.Bhatt,

Abstract:
The annual reports are long and are getting longer. But, because reporting has evolved in separate, disconnected strands, critical interdependencies between strategy, governance, operations and financial and non-financial performance are not made clear. To provide for the growing demand for a broad information set from markets, regulators and civil society, a framework is needed that can support the future development of reporting, reflecting this growing complexity. Such a framework needs to bring together the diverse but currently disconnected strands of reporting into a coherent, integrated whole, and demonstrate an organization’s ability to create value now and in the future. Integrated Reporting brings together the material information about an organization’s strategy, governance, performance and prospects in a way that reflects the commercial, social and environmental context within which it operates. It provides a clear and concise representation of how an organization demonstrates stewardship and how it creates value, now and in the future. Integrated Reporting can reduce the reporting burden on organizations while improving investors, and other stakeholders, insight and understanding.

Key words:
-------------------------------------------------
Integrated reporting, Corporate Governance, Corporate reporting
