B.       The accounting profession has provided sets of general principles (standards, rather than rules) that in some cases allow several approaches to accounting for transactions. C.       The general accounting principles have been generated by a series of organizations over time. I.          Rule Making Bodies A.       American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) 1.         Principal professional organization for accountants 2.         From 1939 to 1959 this group issued bulletins addressing specific problems. 3.         Issued rules for companies to put together their financial statements 4.         Had an accounting principles board - APB 5.         Issued opinions on how to issue statements 6.         Accountants trade organization - not independent of accountants B.       Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) 1.         Representatives of the accounting profession, business, education and government 2.         Independent of accountants - various stakeholders involved 3.         Issue statements creating principles by which companies put together financial documents 4.         SFAS #________ 5.         More like standards than rules. C.       Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) 1.         Standards of the profession D.       SEC 1. 

f external transactions with third parties
D.       Cash
1.         Recognize transaction when actual money is received
E.        Accrual
1.         Make contract for sale of car, but has not transpired yet (will occur at a future time). Do not have money, but do have obligation from other party that you are going to receive money.  Count receipt of that money as an asset of that firm even though you do not have it yet.
IV.    Accounting Principles
A.       Value
1.         Intro
a)         Stream of monetary benefits that a particular asset can provide – worth value of stream of benefits that asset (i.e. land) provides
2.         Examples
a)         Shares (dividends)
b)        Bonds (coupon payments)
B.       Flexibility
1.         No one set of rules, different firms can use different methods that work for them
C.       Standardization
1.         We prefer standardization so that companies can be compared
2.         Accounting Organizations (FASB) seek some standardization while allowing flexibility
D.       Historical Cost Principle
1.         Assets reported in terms of historical cost in arms-length transaction
E.        Reliability Principle
1.         Intro
a)         Value of assets should be verifiable.
b)        Can be shown to a regulator and show value assigned to a particular asset
c)         Sometimes difficult/costly to show what accounts for value of a particular asset
2.         Example
a)         Intro
(1)      If you have 1 million widgets and can sell them for $2 apiece, but some have defects and will be returned, how to account for them?
b)        Sampling
(1)      See what percentage are defective and show value of saleable inventory
F.        Cost-Effective Principle
1.         Accounting reports should be cost effective and need only report material information – information of a magnitude that it might influence a decision.
G.       Economic Entity Principle
1.         Intro
a)         If parent owns at least 50% of a subsidiary, typically financial statements of subsidiary are included in statements of parent
2.         Goal
a)         To maintain single set of statements where parent actually controls the subsidiary
