Integrated reporting is a developing reporting aspect in order to assess problems relating to corporate reporting. It provides a comprehensive account of organizational worth. This paper aims to assess whether integrated reporting and organizational capital increase the value relevance of firms. A checklist containing 100 integrated reports of banks which are listed in Colombo stock exchange were used for the analysis. Data were collected over the period from 2010 to 2019. Statistical analysis was done using the EWIS. Finding reveals that the book value of equity, earnings before interest and taxation of the equity of the bank, leverage of the bank and Organizational capital have a direct effect on the market value of equity of the bank while return on equity and size does not have a positive impact on the market value of equity of the bank. And to the best of our knowledge, it reveals that there is a significant effect of integrated reporting on the value relevance of organizations. Future research avenues were identified and the suggestions for future research on integrated reporting were provided. The findings bring out different implications for managers, decision-makers and the research community as well.
