The Accounting and Auditing Research Centre (AARC) is directed by Dr Jill Collis. It provides a focus for investigating current issues in corporate financial reporting, assurance and corporate governance in large and small entities. Specialist areas include impact assessments of government policy on the accounting and auditing needs of SMEs and the effect of deregulation on users of their financial statements and the accountancy profession.
