What is Comparability

This quality would enable users to identify changes in the business over time (for instance, trend in sales revenue over the past five years). It would also help them to evaluate the performance of business in relation to similar businesses. Comparability is achieved by treating items which are essentially the same in the same manner for accounting purposes. Comparability may also be enhanced by making clear the policies which have been adopted in measuring and presenting the information.
