Abstract Effective corporate governance is considered to be a prominent topic of extensive research among the academic community. Corporate governance has been recognized as a key factor for innovative firms’ activities and the improvement of intellectual capital. Thus the study of the reported corporate governance information is connected with modern business development. The purpose of the study is to determine whether the reporting of corporate governance affects the relevance of accounting information. We examined the listed firms on the Athens Stock Exchange for the period 2010–2017. In detail using Ohlson’s model we investigated the effect of the reported corporate governance information on the value relevance of financial reports. We also assessed methodological aspects of the OLS WLS and neural networks in order to evaluate the value relevance using the Ohlson’s equation. We found evidence that the independence of the board of directors the participation of women in the board of directors and CEO duality affect the market value of business firms however their contribution in the value relevance of accounting information was limited.
