Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)
The business entity concept limits the economic data in the accounting system to data related directly to the activities of the business. The cost concept is the basis for entering the exchange price, or cost of an acquisition in the accounting records.
The objectivity concept requires that the accounting records and reports be based upon objective evidence. The unit-of-measure concept requires that economic data be recorded in dollars.
The Accounting Equation Assets = Liabilities + Owners Equity The resources owned by a business
The Accounting Equation Assets = Liabilities + Owners Equity The rights of the creditors, which represent debts of the business
The Accounting Equation Assets = Liabilities + Owners Equity The rights of the owners
What is a business transaction? A business transaction is an economic event or condition that directly changes an entitys financial condition or directly affects its results of operations.
