As a result of many years of experience there evolved a body general guide of accounting procedure referred to as general accepted accounting principles (GAAP) often these principle have resulted from general wide spread acceptance approaches used by one or a few organization to solve their problems of accounting for few situation.

Often, this principle has resulted more from practical experience rather than from reasoned topic, as a result, individual principles are often in conflict with each other.

In addition, a great variety of accounting methods are permitted for applying the accounting principles which sometimes produces sufficient different result when reporting the same set of fact. In recent years, there has been a great effort by individual and professional organization to re-examine the basic body of the effort so as to remove among accounting principle and to narrow the range of accepted method of reporting to a given set of events.
