Branschpraxis juridiska betydelse i svensk redovisning

2005 (Swedish)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
Abstract [sv]

Redovisningsrätten är ett rättsområde som av tradition tillmäter sedvanerätten, där ibland branschspecifik praxis, stor betydelse som rättskälla. I takt med att redovisningen blivit mer detaljstyrd i lag, samtidigt som antalet redovisningsrekommendationer från normgivande organ som BFN och RR tenderar att tillmätas en allt större betydelse som rättskälla, råder dock osäkerhet om vilken betydelse branschspecifik praxis skall tillmätas som rättskälla. Detta är framförallt svårt att avgöra eftersom redovisningsrätten saknar någon utförligare rättskällelära som förmår klargöra vilken inbördes hierarki som skall gälla mellan olika rättskällor.

Uppsatsen har funnit att branschspecifik praxis bör tillmätas betydelse som rättskälla och god redovisningssed. Detta gäller under förutsättning att sedvanerätt föreligger, praxisen överensstämmer med lagstiftningen, är kvalitativt godtagbar, den aktuella branschen uppvisar särdrag som inte kan tillgodoses med hjälp av övriga rättskällor och slutligen att den aktuella praxisen anpassas efter och utvecklas i takt med övriga rättskällorna. Studien har vidare funnit att allmänt vedertagen rättskällelära kan fungera som lämplig utgångspunkt för att avgöra vilken inbördes dignitet en rättskälla skall tillmätas inom redovisningsrätten. Allmänt vedertagen rättskällelära förmår dock inte att närmare precisera de olika rättskällornas betydelse och vilken hierarki som skall gälla mellan dessa.

Abstract [en]

Within Swedish accounting law the non codified good accounting practise has long been an important source of justice as a complement to written law. As a result of the Swedish EC-membership as well as an increasing use of international accounting standards, Swedish accounting law has come to rely more upon a codified law, diminishing the need for and use of good accounting and customary law. Good accounting practise however still continues to serve as an important complement to codified law but its legal significance as source of justice compared to latter is uncertain to say the least. The matter is further complicated due to the fact that there is a close connection between taxation and accounting in Sweden, meaning that not only mere accountong issues have to be considered when trying to decide the importance of good accounting practise.

In this thesis the above mentioned issue of the importance of good accounting practise as a source of justice within specific branches is investigated on the basis of Swedish and international accounting law and related regulations. Empirical data have further been collected thru use of interviews with accounting professionals. Special consideration has been given to the close connection between accounting and taxation and its implications upon Swedish accounting law and the studied topic.

Based upon the collected data it has been found that good accounting practise and customary law formally still functions as as a important source of justice, only superseeded by written law. The use and development of customary law within specific branches however seems to be rather uncommon, mostly due to the fact most branches lack the economic incentives as well as the necessary knowledge to develop accounting practises of their own.
