Accounting Framework

The rules and conventions of accounting are generally referred to as the conceptual framework of accounting.  As already elaborates in the previous section accounting communicates financial information to the several stakeholders.  It is essential in which there is uniformity in the preparation of financial statement of different business enterprises at a point of time and consistency over a period of time.  To have uniformity & consistency in the financial statements they are prepared inside a framework of GAAP "(Generally Accepted Accounting Principles)". A Generally accepted accounting principle follows a conceptual framework that are expressed as postulates, concepts, convention, principals, axioms, etc. For our reasons we are going to use the term Accounting Principles Yorston, Smith and Brown describes accounting principles as "the body of doctrines generally related with the theory and procedure of accounting and serving as an explanation of current practices and as guide for selection of conventions and process where alternatives exist". The most significant goal of accounting principles is to give a coherent set of logical principles which form the general frame for the evaluation and development of sound accounting principles.
