Creative accounting and Implication for dividend                           payout of companies in the Financial Sub-sector of Nigerian Economy.  Mediterranean Journal of Social   Science, 3 (15): 125-139. (ROME, ITALY)

 

 

 

 

The paper examines the relationship between creative accounting and reported financial performance of banks and insurance companies in Nigeria.The study shows that creative accounting techniques are positively associated with firm financial performance and have significant effect in dividend payout.The paper concludes that the desire to showcase impressive picture of corporate profitability through payment of enhanced dividend often breaches professional ethics in financial reporting. The paper recommends a more stringent regulatory regime with effective enforcement mechanism.

The paper is an empirical investigation of Creative Accounting Practices (CAP) in the Nigerian Banking Industry.The paper reveals that the major reason for creative accounting practices in Nigerian Banks is to boost the market value of shares thus users of accounting information are adversely affected by CAP.The paper recommends considering CAP as a serious crime and requiring regulatory bodies to adopt strict measures to stop the practice
