The Problems of Accounting in a Public Institution: The Case of Slovenia

Meta Duhovnik, Slovenian Institute of Auditors, Ljubljana, Slovenia

In the article the author determines that, due to changes during the privatisation process, the Slovenian framework for public institution accounting is unable to assure the relevant presentation of costs, benefits and effects. She therefore proposes certain changes based on solutions applied in the private sector accounting practices. Her conclusions and recommendations, however, are based on a need for a true and fair measurement of a public institution's results. The recommended way to achieve this goal is the proper application of solutions included in the International Public Sector Accounting Standards issued by the International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board of the International Federation of Accountants.

Keywords:  public institution, benefits, costs, effects, Accounting Act, Slovenian Accounting Standards, International Public Sector Accounting Standards, accrual principle
