Methods For the study, we used the methods of analysis, synthesis, and grouping. Results The article describes the basics of accounting standards for Islamic financial institutions. It presents the considered standards in a tabulated form, including their numbers and dates of introduction into effect. The article shows the requirements to the content of the information provided in the financial statements of Islamic financial institutions and the contents of the reporting. As well, it describes the scope of application of each particular financial accounting standard. Conclusions Accounting in Islamic financial institutions aims to form information on the basis of which users of financial statements can assess the extent to which Islamic organizations are exercising the rights and obligations of all the parties concerned, in accordance with the principles of Sharia, Islamic law. From the general characteristic of the standards reviewed, it follows that financial statements should be credible, relevant, reliable, and transparent to users.
