What are Accounting Standards?

5 August, 2015 - 14:41

Definitive benchmarks prescribed by a country's Accounting Standards Board (as in the UK), or Financial Accounting Standards Board (as in the US) for reporting of accounting data in financial statements. These rules must be applied to all financial statements in order to provide a true and fair view of the firm's financial position, and a standardized method of comparison with financial statements of the other firms.
