APPLICATION OF ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES AND STANDARD IN MODERN ACCOUNTING PRACTICE

INTRODUCTION
Accounting Principles as a term is said to be a set of rules that govern accounting practices. They are rules that companies must follow when preparing and reporting financial statements. These principles are meant to be followed and adhered to in the determination and measurement of assets, liabilities, income and expenses for financial reporting.

Accounting standards on its own are pronouncements or statement issued by accounting regulatory bodies such as Financial Accounting Standard Board (FASB) equivalent to Nigeria Accounting Standard Board (NSB) which serve as a guideline to the preparation of financial statement showing the level of what is expected from firms and companies in their financial statement production and presentation.

Both Accounting Principles and Standard are rules and guidelines that are necessary for a meaningful financial statement of different companies because they help in the uniformity of different company’s preparation of financial statement. For instance, by using consistent principles, all companies reporting under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles report and prepare their financial statements in a consistent manner. The Application of Accounting Principles and Standards mean the practical use of these rules and guidelines by companies. 

The Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and Standard (GAAP) cannot be left out the mentioning of accounting principles and standards because it is the codification/arrangement of how firms and corporations prepare and present their business income and expenditure, assets and liabilities on their financial statements. It is not a single account rule but the aggregate of many rules and standards on how to account for various transactions.
