Full, Fair and Adequate Disclosure

The architecture of business has evolved from proprietorship to partnership to joint stock companies or publicly held companies. Except from this in most of the companies the public has important interest and stakes. Further to the stake of the general public the organizations borrow from banks, government, creditors, etc.

In case of professionally managed companies there is a divorce among the management & owners of the business that is owners entrust the responsibility of running the business on professional managers.  In nutshell for the several stakeholders of the business the only source of information is the financial statement prepared through the managers of the business. Thus, it is essential that important material information is disclosed and financial statements are honestly prepared in conformity with commonly accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  Adhering to GAAP ensures full, fair and adequate disclosure of business transactions in financial report.
