Formatted abstract This study examines the relationship between budget emphasis, budgetary participation and task difficulty on performance in a chartered accounting firm. It also provides insight into the effect of sampling from different hierarchical levels within an organisation on these variables. Evidence suggests that higher budgetary participation in high task difficulty situations has a positive impact on performance for employees in both high and low hierarchical levels. However, less budgetary participation in low task difficulty situations improves performance for employees in lower organisational levels. This implies that further development in the reliance on accounting performance measures literature needs to ensure that hierarchical effects are controlled for in sample selection.
