    20. Accounting principles & qualitative characteristics needs to be remembered. • I mean literally! • I will provide ‘posters’ that I want put up on your toilet door! • I am not kidding! This is important!

    21. The generally accepted rules that govern the way accounting information is recorded. • Entity: The business is assumed to be separate from the owner and other businesses, and its assets should be kept on this basis. • Going Concern: The life of the business is assumed to be continuous, and its records are kept on that basis. • Reporting Period: The life of the business must be divided into periods of time to allow reports to be prepared, and the accounting records should reflect the reporting period in which the transaction occurs. Accounting Principles

    22. Historical Cost: Transactions should be recorded at their original cost or value, as this value is verifiable by reference to the source document. • Conservatism: Losses should be recorded when probable, but gains only when certain so that liabilities and expenses are not understated and assets & revenues are not overstated. • Consistency: Accounting methods should be applied in a consistent manner to ensure that reports are comparable between periods. Accounting Principles

    23. Monetary Unit: All items must be recorded and reported in the currency of the country of location. Accounting Principles

    24. Qualitative characteristics set out the broad concepts that underpin the preparation of the financial reports and defines the items that will be reported in each report. • The Qualitative characteristics are basically the qualities we would like our accounting information to possess. Qualitative Characteristics

    25. Relevance • Relevance states that reports should include all information that is useful for decision making, and exclude information that is not. This information should be up-to-date, and appropriate to the decision at hand. • Reliability • Reliability states that reports should contain information that is free from bias, and thus can be relied upon for its accuracy. Qualitative Characteristics

    26. Comparability • Comparability states that reports should be comparable over time, and between different companies, through the use of consistent accounting procedures. • Understandability • Understandability states that reports should be presented in a manner that makes it easy for the user to comprehend their meaning. Qualitative Characteristics

    27. In summary, accountants are guided by: • Accounting principles, which govern the way accounting information is recorded. • Qualitative characteristics, which inform the way accounting reports are prepared. • Principles apply mainly to records, and qualities apply to reports. Summary

    28. Finish note taking. • Read Summary. • Do a minimum of five exercises at the end of the chapter (don’t just do the first five). You!
