Drawing upon the contingency theory of organisations, we identify a set of perceived international environmental factors and examine how these factors influence a company's voluntary disclosure levels. The perceived international environmental factors identified are (a) intensity of global competition, (b) international socio-political institutions, (c) international accounting standards, and (d) international financial institutions. Based on data collected from 100 Egyptian non-financial listed companies, the results of multiple regression analysis indicate that the level of a company's voluntary disclosure is positively and significantly associated with its perceived influence of (a) international socio-political institutions (such as the United Nations, the European Union, the Association of South East Asian Nations, the World Trade Organization, and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development), (b) international accounting standards, and (c) international financial institutions (such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund). Contrary to our expectations, our findings reveal no significant association between voluntary disclosure level and perceived intensity of global competition. Our study contributes to the international accounting disclosure field by providing evidence from Egypt that perceived international environmental factors may influence the type and level of accounting disclosures by organisations. These findings are also applicable to other emerging countries.
