The standards used in practicing accountancy in the Philippines are not created by ordinary individuals. They are created by a set body made by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC). The Financial Reporting Standards Council (FRSC) was established by the PRC under the law in 2004 to assist the Board of Accountancy (BOA) in carrying out its power and function to promulgate accounting standards in the Philippines. The FRSC is responsible for establishing and improving generally accepted accounting standards in the Philippines. The FRSC is tasked to promulgate rules and regulations that affect the practice of the accountancy profession in accordance with the laws that regulate it in the Philippines.
