Special Nominal Accounts Nominal accounts whose balances are carried over from one accounting period to another.

...aid of examples, how the transactions impact the accounting equation. The accounting equation consists of three company`s accounts including assets, liabilities and owner`s equity. The accounting equation can be summarized as : Assets = Liabilities + Owner`s Equity Based on the equation, assets are the total of liabilities and owner`s equity. Assets are a company’s resources—things the company owns. Examples of assets include cash, accounts receivable, inventory, prepaid insurance, investments, land, buildings, equipment, and goodwill. Liabilities are the amounts of the company owes. Examples of liabilities include notes or loans payable, accounts payable, salaries and wages payable, and interest payable. Owner’s equity or stockholders’ equity is the amount left over after liabilities are deducted from assets: Assets – Liabilities = Owner’s Equity. Owner's Equity is applicable when the company is a sole proprietorship. If the company is a corporation, the words Stockholders' Equity is used. Owner’s or stockholders’ equity also reports the amounts invested into the company by the owners plus the cumulative net income of the company that has not been withdrawn or distributed to the owners. The accounting balance will balance if the records are accurate. The balance is maintained because every business transaction impact at least two accounts. For example, when a company borrows money from a bank, the company’s assets will increase and its liabilities will......

...keep them as sources of cash. For example, the company purchases inventory (use of cash) and an account payable (source of cash) is created with the supplier. The payable should be kept current so that the supplier will provide additional inventory in the future. Net Worth Net worth simply represents the owner's investment in the company. It is treated the same as a liability in that both creditors and owners are a source of cash for the company. The owner's investment, however, is an obligation which may never have to be repaid. A positive net worth demonstrates that the owners have a financial commitment to the company that is subordinate to all other creditors.

...require special attention from the auditors 2. Evaluating Accounting Standards The external auditor shall determine the accounting standards used by the institution. Many microfinance institutions do not follow the national standards or international. 2.2 The accounting policies During the pre-commitment, the external auditor should ask the management of the institution which accounting method it uses. Sometimes the service accounts of the institution are not able to answer this question. Many institutions have adopted accrual accounting, sometimes in a modified form. This accounting method is consistent with the standards imposed by most accounting bodies. But some institutions continue to use cash. Auditors should know that it can be in the interests of Polly Peck to register their activities, especially the product credits, according to a cash basis, taking into account adjustment proposals made at the end of the year by the auditor. Since operations of Polly Peck were overseas in Turkey, it did not follow a uniform accounting from one account to another, which further complicates the work of the auditor.

...concept—or consistency of presentation in financial accounting—is one of four fundamental assumptions of IAS 1 (International Accounting Standard 1), along with going concern, accruals and fair presentation. Consistency holds that accounting methods used in one accounting period should be the same as methods used for events/transactions, which are materially similar, in other periods. Naturally, there are unique circumstances in which entities can change methods and not follow the consistency concept, although there must be good reason for this.The requirement for consistency reinforces qualitative characteristics of financial statements, such as reliability and comparability. Its aim is to facilitate historical comparisons of financial accounts of an entity. The consistency concept arose because, in accounting, there several methods or techniques to determine valuations or costs. A classic example is depreciation, which can be determined using the straight-line or reducing balance method. Another good example is the application of the historical cost convention or the LIFO (Last in/ First out)/ FIFO (First in/ First out) methods for stock valuation. For example, assume that ABC Company Ltd. purchases equipment for \$100,000.00 in 20X7. It decides to use the straight-line method of depreciation for that equipment. Two years later, ABC Company Ltd decides that it is more appropriate to use the reducing balance method. Notwithstanding the bases for exemptions from......
