Document Summary

As you can see from the example of tees inc. in chapter 2, both the preparers of financial information and the external stakeholders, the users, have objectives (things they want from the business).

The bank, an external stakeholder, wants financial information so they can decide on the amount of the loan as well as whether the loan, plus interest, will be repaid by the business. Both parties need financial information to meet their objectives. The qualitative characteristics and underlying assumptions are part of generally accepted accounting principles, called gaap (pronounced as gap). Preparers of accounting information use gaap as a guideline when preparing financial accounting information.

Does not provide the necessary details for you to make decisions about your business.
