3.1. Definition of Bank:
A bank is a firm or institution doing a bonafide banking business, which debts are commonly,
accepted in final statement of other people debts. An organization usually a corporation, chartered
by the state or federal government which does most or all of the following: receives demand
deposit, time deposit, honors instrument drawn on them and pays interest on them; discounts
notes, makes loan and invest in securities; collect checks, drafts, and notes and issues drafts and
cashier checks.

3.2. Definition of Islamic Bank:


An Islamic Bank is a financial and social institution whose objectives and operations as well as
principles and practices must conforms to the principles of Islamic Shariah, and which must avoid
the use of interest in any of its operations. The organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) defined
an Islamic Bank as a financial institution whose statutes, rules and procedures expressly state its
commitment to the principles of Islamic Shariah and to the banning of the receipt and payment of
interest on any of its operation.

3.3. Financial Statements:


According to Kieso, Financial Statements are the principal means through which financial
information is communicated to those outside an enterprise.
A Financial Statements is a document reporting business financial performance and resources.
Financial statements include:

The balance sheet


Income Statement,
Changes in equity and
Cash flow for the period.
3.5. Authoritative Body for providing rules and regulations in Accounting:

10

In Accounting, there are many authoritative bodies for providing rules and regulations. But there
mainly two bodies are important for providing rules and regulations, which generally accepted in
whole world. They are discussed below:
a) Financial Accounting Standard Board (FASB)
b) International Accounting Standard Board (IASB)

a) Financial Accounting Standard Board (FASB):


The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) is a private, non-for-profit organization whose
primary purpose is to develop generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) within the United
States in the public's interest. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) designated the
FASB as the organization responsible for setting accounting standards for public companies in the
U.S. It was created in 1973, replacing the Committee on Accounting Procedure (CAP) and the
Accounting Principles Board (APB) of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants
(AICPA).

b) International Accounting Standard Board (IASB):


In an effort to generate comparable and reliable accounting information to help investors,
creditors and others, each country has developed its own national financial accounting standards.
These standards reflect the culture, history, and the characteristics of accounting problems facing
that country.

In some countries, the professional bodies formulate the financial accounting

standards, while in many others governments and regulators establish these standards. As a result,
much of the 20th century had witnessed a high degree of variation in the international accounting
practices. International accounting diversity was one of the topics discussed in the tenth
International Congress of Accountants in 1972. Accounting bodies of some countries attending
the meeting were concerned in reducing the degree of variation in international accounting
practices. As a result, in 1973, the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC) was
formed. The founders of this Committee included accounting bodies from Australia, Canada,
France, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, West Germany, the United States, United Kingdom and
Ireland. Harmonization of accounting standards around the world was one of the main objectives
of this Committee. Harmonization can be defined as the process of reducing the degree of
variation in international accounting practices.
The first exposure draft and the first international accounting standard appeared in 1974. In its
early years the IASC concentrated on the development of the international accounting standards.
The Committee had issued 13 International Accounting Standards between 1974 and 1979.

11

However there was little success, if any, with respect to the harmonization goal because of lack of
enforcement. The IASC was a private organization and its members included accounting bodies
from various countries. Adoption of International Accounting Standards by different countries
was not enforceable by this Committee. Even though the member bodies pledged to cooperate
with the IASC, the accounting standard setting bodies of most countries did not adopt these
standards during the early years. The two main reasons for this were:
International Accounting Standards were not comprehensive enough, and
International Accounting Standards were very flexible. They provided alternative options
to accountants to deal with one accounting issue.
During later years the IASC addressed these issues. In 1987 the Comparability Project was
undertaken to reduce the number of options allowed by the International Accounting Standards.
In 1993, the project was completed and ten of the revised standards were approved.
The International Organization of Securities Exchange Commissions (IOSCO) had been
pressuring the IASC to develop a comprehensive set of Core Standards. In 1995, the IASC and
the IOSCOs Technical Committee reached an agreement on a work plan for a set of forty Core
Standards. Upon successful completion of these standards, IOSCO agreed to endorse IASs in all
global markets. The IASC completed the development of these forty Core Standards by 1999.
Recently IASC experienced a structural change similar to the structure of Financial Accounting
Standards Board (FASB) of the United States. In March 2000, a new IASC constitution was
approved and the name of the international standard setting body was changed to International
Accounting Standards Board (IASB). The new board (IASB) reports to IASC Foundation and
assumed its duties in April 2001.

3.6. BAS and BFRS are in Bangladesh:


In Bangladesh, the ICAB (the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh) regulates the
practice of financial accounting. The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh is a
professional accountancy body in the Bangladesh. It is the sole organization in the Bangladesh
with the right to award the Chartered Accountant designation. The ICAB is a member of IASB
and it has adopted several IAS as BAS (Bangladesh Accounting Standards) and also accepted
some IFRS as BFRS (Bangladesh Financial Reporting Standards). In Bangladesh, there are 29
BAS and 9 BFRS, which are regulated by the ICAB.

3.7. Bangladesh Accounting Standard (BAS-1): Presentation of Financial


statements:
Objective:

comprehensive income or in the separate statement of comprehensive income (if presented).
108 In paragraph 106, the components of equity include, for example, each class of contributed
equity, the accumulated balance of each class of other comprehensive income and retained
earnings.
110 BAS 8 requires retrospective adjustments to effect changes in accounting policies, to the
extent practicable, except when the transition provisions in another BFRS require otherwise. BAS
8 also requires restatements to correct errors to be made retrospectively, to the extent practicable.
Retrospective adjustments and retrospective restatements are not changes in equity but they are
adjustments to the opening balance of retained earnings, except when a BFRS requires
retrospective adjustment of another component of equity. Paragraph 106(b) requires disclosure in
the statement of changes in equity of the total adjustment to each component of equity resulting
from changes in accounting policies and, separately, from corrections of errors. These adjustments
are disclosed for each prior period and the beginning of the period.

statements of Shahjalal Islami Bank Ltd.:
Bank is a very old financial institution that is contributing toward the development od any
economy and is treated as an important service industry in modern world. Now a day, the function
of bank is not limited to within the same geographical limit of any country. Due to globalization
and free market economy this industry is facing severe competition in any country. Bangladesh
banking sector plays a vital role in the economy. Application of BASs would reflect greater
accountability of corporate management and transparency of published financial information
as well as enhance the creditability of the statutory audit function of Bangladesh. This will
make the environment in Bangladesh more transparent and thus enable the country to attract
foreign and local investment which ultimately contributes to business growth and economic
development if the country.
