Its major objective is to investigate the Tunisian accountants’ basic knowledge and perceptions of Islamic accounting.
The study has been designed for the sake of the Tunisian accountants’ predisposition to adhere to the AAOIFI standards, as a population directly concerned by an eventual adoption of such standards.
