Accounting Standards Objectives

Accounting Standards Objectives

Accounting as a ‘language of business’ communicates the financial results of an enterprise to various stakeholders by means of financial statements. If the financial accounting process is not properly regulated, there is possibility of financial statements being misleading, tendentious and providing a distorted picture of the business, rather than the true state of affairs. In order to ensure transparency, consistency, comparability, adequacy and reliability of financial reporting, it is essential to standardize the accounting principles and policies.

Accounting Standards Objectives

Accounting Standards provide framework and standard accounting policies so that the financial statements of different enterprises become comparable.

The Accounting Standards reduce the accounting alternatives in the preparation of rational financial statements thereby ensuring comparability of financial statements of different enterprises. The Accounting Standards deal with the issues of

(i) recognition of events and transactions in the financial statements,

(ii) measurement of these transactions and events,

(iii) presentation of these transactions and events in the financial statements in a manner that is meaningful and understandable to the reader, and

(iv) the disclosure requirements which should be there to enable the public at large and the stakeholders and the potential investors in particular, to get an insight into these financial statements which helps the users to take prudent and informed business decisions.

The Accounting Standards Objectives is to standardize diverse accounting policies with a view to eliminate, to the maximum possible extent,

(i) the non-comparability of financial statements and thereby improving the reliability of financial statements, and

(ii) to provide a set of standard accounting policies, valuation norms and disclosure requirements.

Accounting Standards Objectives

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), being a premier accounting body in the country, took upon itself the leadership role by constituting the Accounting Standards Board (ASB) in 1977. The ICAI has taken significant initiatives in the setting and issuing procedure of Accounting Standards to ensure that the standard-setting process is fully consultative and transparent. The ASB considers the International Accounting Standards (IASs)/International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) while framing Indian Accounting Standards (ASs) and try to integrate them, in the light of the applicable laws, customs, usages and business environment in the country.
