We analyze if a change in accounting standard or a change in prudential regulation impacts banks’ loan loss provision. We find that, in general, the banks using a principles-based accounting standard exhibit a lower level of earnings management compared to banks using a rules-based accounting standard. When a country moves from pro-cyclical macro-prudential regulations to a dynamic provisioning regime, banks are more likely to set aside a larger amount of loan loss provision for the purpose of income smoothing.
