Accounting

Accounting has evolved and emerged within response to the social & economic requirement of the society. The accounting procedure has its own syntax. The primary system on which the accounting system is based is called as Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and Accounting Standards. Accounting principles are broad guidelines for general applications; they permit a huge variety of methods and practices. Accounting Standards are formulated along with a view to harmonise various accounting policies and practices in use in a country. The goal of Accounting Standards is, therefore, to decrease the accounting alternatives in the preparation of financial statements inside the bounds of rationality, through ensuring comparability of financial statements of various enterprises with a view to give meaningful information to several users of financial statements to enable them to make informed economic decisions.
