Abstract
The process of harmonization of public sector accounting systems within the European Union (EU) and the development of European Public Sector Accounting Standards (EPSAS) seems to be encountering some national resistance. This is mainly due to the reliance on International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS), which are based on their private sector counterparts designed for business accounting. In certain countries, this can conflict with national rules and traditions relating to public sector accounting
