Payments and money are developing and changing especially fast. Technological evolution and development have led to the emergence of new transactional techniques on the Internet, mobile phones, and credit cards. Various systems of payment / money transfer have considerably expanded payment options and possibilities. And such conditions have created opportunities for the emergence of a cryptocurrency. The purpose of the study is to investigate the cryptocurrency, its concept, advantages and disadvantages. Analysis of the scientific literature, systematization, comparison, interpretation and generalization of information research methods were used for the study. Evaluation of the reasons for the emergence of cryptocurrency let to generalise, that the process was mostly influenced by technological progress and the aspiration to find faster, cheaper and more confidential settlement tools. Cryptocurrency may be defined as digital money or property in electronical form. This currency may be characterized by properties of decentralization, uncontrollability and higher risk management. The most important advantages of using a cryptocurrency may be: the speed of settlements; cheaper financial services; additional investment opportunities. Disadvantages - unpredictable, fluctuating value; possible fraud cases; possibility to use cryptocurrency for illegal activities.</p> Augustas Subačius, Rasa Subačienė ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.journals.vu.lt/BATP/article/view/12762 Tue, 14 May 2019 00:00:00 +0300 Dividend Policy Trend: A Comprehensive Study on the Listed Industrial Sector of Bangladesh http://www.journals.vu.lt/BATP/article/view/12840 <p>The financial decision is rotated around the dividend decision. The objective is to identify the dividend pattern and the management’ views of dividend policy for revealing the present scenario of dividend practices in the capital market of Bangladesh. The parametric test, non-parametric test and percentile are used for inferring the result. In the manufacturing sector, the miscellaneous sector provides the highest payout. The DPS, EPS, MPS of the large size firm is better than small and medium size firms. The payout of the older firms is more than the newly listed firms. The highest payouts are in medium leveraged firm, low risk’s firm, medium PE ratio’s firm. The survey results reveal that the both shareholders and companies prefer the cash dividend most because of majority shareholders’ expectation. The most of the companies pay cash dividend with stable payout. The majority companies follow increasing trend in dividend payment but there is no satisfactory research to justify the investors’ preference. The capital market related stakeholders should follow these findings.</p> Mohammad Shahidul Islam, Adnan Atm ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.journals.vu.lt/BATP/article/view/12840 Tue, 14 May 2019 00:00:00 +0300 Bankruptcy Prediction Models for the Banking Sector of Europe http://www.journals.vu.lt/BATP/article/view/12841 <p><span lang="en-US">The global financial crisis has hit the global business and society hard and has caused a mistrust in the monitoring and control of the banking sector a decade ago. The distrust encouraged supervisory authorities to reinforce the bankruptcy preventive measures, that are being developed to prevent or mitigate the negative effects of the new crisis. The development and permanent application of reliable bankruptcy prediction models are the part of such preventive measures. The aim of the study was to create a universal straightforward bankruptcy prediction model for the European banking sector, based on the analysis of financial ratios.&nbsp;</span><span lang="en">The study examines the scholarly literature and deploys the theoretical methods of comparative analysis, critical evaluation, systematisation, generalisation. The empirical research involves expert assessment method,&nbsp;</span><span lang="en-US">analysis of financial statements, data collection, structuring and modification, modelling: binary logistic regression, correlation, graphical representation of data, ROC curve.&nbsp;</span><span lang="en-US">Research and results: based on selected 24 variables (ratios), five binary logistic regression models were created. The accuracy was tested on the ROC curve, together with the comparison of II type errors, which were made while predicting bank’s failure 1 year and 2 years before the distress. Main findings were: when models where validated and their II type errors were compared, the conclusion was made that model Z5 is the most suitable for predicting bankruptcy for the European banking sector. The accuracy to identify failing banks 1 year before the distress was 78.57%.</span></p> <p><span lang="en-US"><strong>JEL:</strong>&nbsp;F 37, G2, G3</span></p> Goda Kazakevičiūtė, Ramunė Budrionytė ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.journals.vu.lt/BATP/article/view/12841 Tue, 14 May 2019 00:00:00 +0300 Trends of Forming the Accounting and Analytical Management System in the Digital Economy http://www.journals.vu.lt/BATP/article/view/12913 <p>Recent trends of overall digitalisation challenges to find new approaches and improvement of information formation systems in different spheres. The trends also make impact on the tendency to develop common stereotypes of methods, accounting procedures, reporting forms, etc. which may be called identification. The identification of accounting systems in its essence - is the solution to the problem of harmonization of accounting at the international level. However, it is impossible to achieve complete identification. Everything that is done in this direction at the national level by accounting systems (standardization of reporting, convergence of national rules with international ones, convergence of evaluation and control systems, etc.) indicates a progressive trend in the processes of identification and harmonization of accounting systems. The purpose of the research is to evaluate the trends of forming the accounting and analytical management system in the digital economy. The research methods are comparison, systematisation and summarisation of information.<strong>&nbsp;</strong>Thus the main components of the accounting organization have been defined, among them: the technique of organizing and conducting accounting; methodological support of accounting and internal control. There is a need for generalization of modern achievements for the construction of the AAMS, the development of the company's development strategy in the light of work peculiarities in the digital economy. Authors identified, that there is a modification of the existing and emergence of modern requirements and tasks for the organization of accounting due to a focus on new users, transformation of motives and requests of all interested in the accounting information participants of international economic relations. Moreover, further improvement of the AAMS organization will enable to increase efficiency and raise productivity of economic activity.</p> <p><strong>JEL code:</strong>&nbsp;M40</p> Serhii Hushko, Volodymyr Kulishov, Yaroslav Izmaylov, Rasa Subačienė ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.journals.vu.lt/BATP/article/view/12913 Tue, 14 May 2019 00:00:00 +0300 Qualitative Factors of the Materiality http://www.journals.vu.lt/BATP/article/view/12914 <p>In the audit evidence gathering process, the auditor uses a set of assumptions about audit risk factors and determines the level of material error and misstatement. In practice, questions arise as to how the auditor should avoid making mistakes in shaping its approach to the information that is relevant to users of financial statements. The aim of the study is to reveal the basic regulation of qualitative materiality factors. Tasks of the research are to analyze the regulatory provisions of international auditing standards, to identify issues regarding the assessment of qualitative factors of materiality and its influence on decision making process of the auditors. Methods of literature analysis, systematization, abstracting and grouping analysis are used in the article. The analysis of scientific and professional literature has shown that qualitative parameters of significance are not precisely defined in the regulatory provisions, therefore, the auditors are left with a wide range of qualitative materiality factors. These factors can fundamentally change the auditor's decision-making process choosing relevant audit procedures. The auditor must evaluate the qualitative data and information comprehensively and be able to identify qualitative factors of materiality.</p> <p><strong>JEL klasifikacija:</strong>&nbsp;M42</p> Daiva Raziūnienė, Gintarė Verbickaitė ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.journals.vu.lt/BATP/article/view/12914 Tue, 14 May 2019 00:00:00 +0300 2007, No.1, Table of Contents http://www.journals.vu.lt/BATP/article/view/12618 <p>Redkolegijos žodis, 7</p> <p><strong>Buhalterinės apskaitos raida</strong></p> <p><em>Romualdas Bartaška</em><strong><em>, </em></strong>Vidaus audito sistema Lietuvoje: raida, &nbsp;funkcionavimas ir perspektyvos, 9</p> <p><em>Jonas Mackevičius</em><strong><em>, </em></strong>Buhalterinės apskaitos reglamentavimas per pirmąjį Lietuvos nepriklausomybės paskelbimo (1918 – 1928 m.) ir atkūrimo (1990 – 2000 m.) dešimtmetį<strong>, </strong>15</p> <p><em>Romualdas Valkauskas</em><strong><em>, </em></strong>Nacionalinė sąskaityba.
