Later on, the concept of value added gained so popularity that companies in different countries started to publish value added statement voluntarily. The statement has two parts: first part deals with value creation and the second part deals with the distribution of same. Later on, expanded value added statements, a special form of value added reporting, has emerged to accomodate social and environmental reporting within the mainstream framework. Such incorporation increases the scope and utility of the statement. However, such statement is not a mendatory requirement, goes to the discretion of management where to publish or not. This monograph covers the theory behind value added, its reporting and regulatory issues.
