Formatted abstract The objective of this study is to provide evidence of any impact on the judgements of bank loan officers' assessment of the ability of a small business borrower to repay debt, as a result of financial reports prepared on a non-GAAP basis being presented for loan evaluation purposes.

Evidence is presented which indicates judgements of bank loan officers' assessment of the ability of a small business borrower to repay debt, are not affected by the presentation of non-GAAP financial reports, compared to GAAP financial reports.

However, as a consequence of information asymmetry problems, additional information costs appear to be imposed by lenders, on borrowers, who present non-GAAP financial reports. In addition, evidence is presented which indicates lenders modify both sets of accounting measurement rules (GAAP and non-GAAP) to improve individual judgements and decision making processes in the evaluation of loans
