Abstract

This sector includes the Ministry of Finance and all its 6 general administrative departments, which are (General Budget Department, General Supplies Department, Income and Sales Tax Department, Land and Survey Department, General Customs Department) to which the provisions of the Government Financial Regulation No. 3 of 1994 and its amendments apply; their budget is included in the State Budget Law No. 2 of 2017. To achieve the objectives of this study, a questionnaire was designed and distributed to the financial managers, heads of audit departments, auditors and financial observers within the study community. (147) questionnaires were distributed to the sample members; the number of questionnaires retrieved and approved for analysis was (108), almost (73.5%).  The statistical program for social sciences (SPSS) was used represented in the descriptive statistics, the test of credibility degree (alpha) and the test of multiple regression to describe the study variables and test its hypotheses. The study concluded that there is a positive effect of disclosure on the reliability of final accounts to a medium degree.
