    This thesis discusses the features of, and design issues involved in the evolution of Pan European Financial Information Systems (PEFIS).

    The factors influencing the development and use of PEFIS are discussed in the light of current EU attempts to harmonize European accounting systems and implement single currency legislation.

    An investigation of current market trends in this areas is presented and a criteria for assessing the development of such systems is proposed together with strategies for setting up the required development environment.

    An extensive survey was conducted in order to discover the extent of PEFIS development amongst the major European software houses and these results are reported in this study.

    Also an existing 'Pan European financial application' is analysed for compliance with the discussed characteristics of a PEFIS.
