CORPORATIONS ACT 2001 No. 50, 2001 - SECT 297

True and fair view

The financial statements and notes for a financial year must give a true and fair view of:

the financial position and performance of the company, registered scheme or disclosing entity; and

if consolidated financial statements are required—the financial position and performance of the consolidated entity.

This section does not affect the obligation under section 296 for a financial report to comply with accounting standards.

Note: If the financial statements and notes prepared in compliance with the accounting standards would not give a true and fair view, additional information must be included in the notes to the financial statements under paragraph 295(3)(c).
